Different Class by Joanne HarrisI love Joanne Harris’ writing and we have many of her books on our shelves. My husband recently bought a couple to add to our collection and Different Class is one of them This is a follow on to the book Gentlemen and Players, set in a school. In this book the action is many years later. A real psychological thriller
The Journey by Josephine Cox
“Three strangers are thrown together by chance. It’s an encounter which is destined to change all of their lives for ever.
When Ben Morris comes to the aid of Lucy Baker and her daughter Mary, he is intrigued by the story behind their frequent visits to the local graveyard. Later, invited into their home, an old Edwardian place suffused with secrets of the past, Ben hears Lucy’s remarkable tale – one she must tell before it’s too late.
The story of Barney Davidson, his family and the part Lucy played in his extraordinary life, is one of a deep, abiding love and an incredible sacrifice.”
What I would call a light read but nonetheless enjoyable.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
My reading challenge was to read books that are already on our bookshelves and of the six books listed, including my previous post, five of them are off the shelves. The Darkest Shore was one recommended by my sister and I downloaded it on Kobo.
Outlander would be known by most folk from the television series. I haven’t watched the series but this book is the first in Diana Gabaldon’s series of eight novels. The book was previously released as Crossstitch.
“Outlander focuses on the World War II-era nurse Claire Randall who travels through time to 18th century Scotland and finds adventure and romance with the dashing Jamie Fraser. The novel is a mix of several genres, historical fiction, romance, adventure and fantasy.”
I enjoyed the book and if I had no other books on my “to read list” I would borrow or purchase further books in the series. Perhaps I will at a later date.
