Historical novel about a young woman's awakening and “journey” – entertaining
The Illumination of Ursula Flight - Anna-Marie Crowhurst



Taking place at the end of the 17th century in the reign of Charles II, this novel deals with a few years in the life of Ursula Flight, born into the gentry, well-educated by her father, married off to wealth and eventually finding her true vocation by the time she's 19 years old, having gone through that cliché, an emotional rollercoaster.

A well-researched and entertaining novel, the characters are well-developed but many aspects of the plotline were not unexpected apart from the ending. A little too predictable in places for my liking and a bit long in the middle section, it is however well worth a read if you're interested in England under the Stuarts and a woman's “journey”.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A page turner that keeps you guessing
FORGOTTEN CRIMES: a gripping psychological suspense thriller - Anna Willett

This is one of those books that you think you know what will happen but are landed with a jaw-dropping surprise at the end. At times very creepy, always full of nail-biting suspense, this is an example of what Willett does best: creating claustrophobic situations in which women have difficult choices to make.

 

Set in the South West of Australia this is Willett's fourth novel.

Still Life with Bread Crumbs - Anna Quindlen

Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quinlan     is the story about  Rebecca a 60-year-old previously famous photographer, She rents her New York apartment due to financial difficulties, and rents an inexpensive cottage in a small town. It's a story of new beginnings. The highlight of the book is her budding romance with her roofer. A wonderful love story. A nice theme about her being able to reinvent herself at the age of 60
