The Abomination of Mrs Rochester


It occurred to me today that I have a blog now.
This was a very important rediscovery because several years ago I read a book and this book made me ANGRY; unfortunately I had no way of expressing this anger except to my family (who really couldn’t have cared less.)

Thyme Out – A Review


THYME OUT Katie Fforde This is the second book I have read by Katie Fforde and I was not disappointed.

Then the book was back in my hands but I had already come to the conclusion that it was a spectacular novel...
