Another collection of books ordered on line.
The one I'm most looking forward to is the 'City of Pearl' by Alys Clare - I love her mixture of history, mystery and a touch of magic.
Rachel Ferguson 'Footman for the Peacock'. The only other Dean Street Press Furrowed Middlebrow book the library has in stock. I have tried and failed with a book by her before but will try again.
Then a couple of recent British Library Crime Classic reprints. I can't remember why I ordered the Willa Cather - I'll try it anyway. Melissa Harrison has written several non-fiction on countryside subjects but this one is fiction and as it's set in Suffolk I thought I'd better try it.
The teeny book on the top was a surprise. I wasn't expecting such a small book, it's this
and is just a few pages about the joy of giving and receiving books as gifts.
Frances Evesham is a new to me author. 'Death in a Desert Land' is Andrew Wilson's 3rd story using Agatha Christie as the main character. The book by Joy Ellis is in a different series to her Fenland crime stories - hope it will be as good and finally a light Erica James book for a change.
Should keep me busy for the next 4 weeks
These were what I collected 4 weeks ago. The ones I read have been added to the Books Read 2019 page,
some went back unread as I couldn't get into them. The Jack Monroe - Tin Can Cook was mainly aimed at families so would leave me with half-a-tin of this and that to use. It would certainly be excellent for giving to people using food banks. Some recipes sounded OK, some a bit weird but as I'm lucky enough to have access to fresh food - often from the garden. I'll stick to fresh while I can.
