One Good Turn by Kate Atkinson
I have mentioned in previous posts that I love Kate Atkinson and this one did not disappoint. I wish that I had read her books in order but it did not take away from her wonderfully witty often laugh-out-loud writing.
The Factory Voice by Jeanette Lynes
A lovely book set in Northern Ontario during WW II, the story follows three women who work in a factory during the war. I found it a very engaging book that I looked forward to reading each night.
Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister by C. Allyn Pierson
I was a big fan of the Pride and Prejudice mini-series starring Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. So I was intrigued when I saw this novel written as a sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The story picks up just before Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy’s wedding and is told mostly from the point of view of Mr. Darcy’s sister Georgiana. I thoroughly enjoyed the book because I always want to know what happens after the wedding in a Jane Austen novel. I suppose Jane Austen die-hards will look down on a sequel but I thought it was well written and good fun.
