Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery
Anne of the Island and Tales of Avonlea - L.M. Montgomery
Each Anne Shirley story is better than the last! You see growth, you root for her with her schooling, and you so want her to decide on Gilbert!
This story always makes me smile, and this is probably the tenth time I've read it. Anne really finds herself in this book. All of her friends are settling down, and in that time it was naturally expected at a certain age. She was of that age and eyes were on her to find someone. 
The ending is my favorite part. I am a sucker for sappy love!
Since I have not read further on in the series, I look forward to reading the next book sometime soon!

A DUKE, THE LADY, AND A BABY by Vanessa Riley
A Duke, the Lady, and a Baby - Vanessa Riley

Patience wants her baby back. Lord Repington is now his guardian. She disguises herself as a nanny to be near her son. Repington will do whatever he needs to keep the baby safe and the nanny as well.

 

I loved this book. I loved Patience and Repington. I like how they try to deny their attraction especially as the truth comes out about what has happened to Patience's husband. They make a good couple. I enjoyed the story. This is a good set up for the series as it explains why these women fight to get what is theirs.

 

I also appreciated the short synopsis' at the end about the historical aspects of this novel. It helped me to understand how those of mixed races/blood/heritage were treated and the double standard applied to them. I also was glad about the short notes on some of the Peninsular War's battles and the effect of them on the time period's complications.

Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of the Name of God - Nataša Pantović Nuit

The novel is divided into two parts, both of which are narrated by Ivana Šeravac when she is retired and living alone, and by the Author. The first part begins in the 1980s with the meeting of Ivana and David, on a train journey to a famous Montenegro’s monastery Ostrog, of whom three feature in the remainder of the story: Author, as the narrator, David Archer, and Ivana, who is doing her life-long research in sound and the development of alphabets. The two discuss the philosophical background of two major Ancient Europe’s thought forms – liberals and conservatives, democratic and monarchy-ruled, Greek-links and Romans, Slavic and Germanic. David has a Phd from the Cambridge University and Ivana stays a mum, determined not to let go of her research passion.

Metaphysics of Sound: in Search of the Name of God, subtitled “a Brief history of the World beyond the Usual

At this point Nataša's narration of the second part of the novel – which is twice as long as the first – begins, it is a historical journey through sounds, followed by the  "classical antiquity" with the Hellenistic, Eastern European history in the Ancient Mediterranean, from the beginning of recorded Ancient Greek history in 776 BC. This roughly coincides with the Golden period in Ancient Greece in Balkan. Following the development of the languages researching the Ancient Egyptian Rosetta Stone, the Ancient Homeric Ionic Greek, Nataša uses the Slavic Cyrillic script to map the oldest Phoenician Alphabet to the European development of languages.
