6 Rainer Drive by Debbie Macomber

On loan from Liz. the sixth book in the ever popular Cedar Cove Series. Cedar Cove is a community where the lives of the residents are entwined with each other. As they deal with their loves and losses, it has been a pleasure to "be" in Cedar Cove once more. Now loitering on my desk, this will be winging its way to Audrey who is another Macomber addict next week.

Coast to Coast by Jan Minshull

I really enjoyed this book, and would have devoured in one sitting except that I fell asleep in the early hours of this morning, but finished during my rare lay in this morning.

This is the gentle story of Linda, who is under appreciated and taken for granted by her family. At what started out as Linda proving a point, became her reality as Linda embarked upon the Coast to Coast walk, though some harsh,yet beautiful territory. Upon the walk, Linda takes the time not only to enjoy and think about where she is walking, but also reflect upon her family, their loves and secrets and her position within her family group. During the walk she mets various people, but one in particular enters Linda's thoughts, and think that perhaps Linda should have been more daring.......

Here a lovely photo of Mount Grace Priory, which features in the book.

WW1: Experiences of an English Soldier

Several weeks ago I came across a fascinating blog. A selection of war letters from the First World War have been posted on the corresponding day on a blog by the Grandson of the soldier who wrote them 90 years ago.

I won't spoil the details, except to say two things, this deserves to be read, it is fascinating and I make no apology if you become hooked on reading the diary; and secondly this deserves to be published. I just wish I had this much detail about my relatives who fought in the First World War.

Simply fascinating & completely incredible that they have survived.
