The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet
The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars A cracking read !, 9 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm still reading this but nearing the end so I will comment. this is an intriguing story of what might have happened to Lizzie and Mr Darcy! A little far- fetched at times, I'm not sure if the characters would have used the language that Ms McCullough has given the and one or two adventures seem a bit hard to swallow , however , it's still a cracking read and I'm enjoying it immensely.

4.0 out of 5 stars left wanting more!, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the recipes by this lady. I've tried two or three and they are all delicious and easy to prepare and make but I only appear to have five or six recipes in this book and I want more!
I have tried to contact the author/ publicist to enquire where I can purchase books by Justine but so far, no luck. this is such an easy, delicious, healthy way of eating - please can I have some more?

I'm very happy with my new paper white kindle but I find the touch screen needs a little getting used to. for example, my previous kindle did not have touch screen but I could turn pages by just clicking the page turner with my thumb - I didn't have to physically move my hand at all. now I have to lift my finger to turn pages. that said I'm loving the in-built light, I can read in any surroundings without having to have an external source of light. I was given both kindles as presents but my original kindle after four years began to 'black out' pages and jump from pages to page unexpected. all in all, I'm very happy with my new kindle

3.0 out of 5 stars good recipes, 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an interesting book of recipes and all the recipes are for one person! My husband isn't doing the 5/2 so I need recipes for one. It can be very difficult to work out if the ingredients serve two or more! I would recommend this book to anyone contemplating this lifestyle ( because it's not really a diet). I would also recommend Dr Michael. Mosley's book - it too has some excellent recipes. I have been following his book for four weeks now and I have lost 12lbs. This is the best 'diet' I have ever followed and believe me I have done them all! It is so easy because it is only for two days so you don't get the dreaded temptations to stray.

Loved this book about Venice! I love Venice and have visited three times but this made me think about the people who live ( or cannot afford to live) there. I had no idea that the real Venetians were being pushed out of their city!

This gave me a new slant on the Prince Charles/Princess Diana story. I used to think Diana was wonderful but of course, there are always two sides to every marriage.

This book has been really well researched and gives one a different take on the character of The Lionheart. I have read quite a few of Sharon Penman's books and always enjoy them

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood will tell, 12 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book throws a completely new light on the failure of Henry III to produce a surving male heir. I had no idea of the Kell chromosone, how interesting it would be to be able to prove this theory by DNA but I suppose that will never happen. I certainly thought this theory credible. Well worth the read!
