The Disappearing Duke: The Improbable Tale of an Eccentric English Family
The Disappearing Duke: The Improbable Tale of an Eccentric English Family
by Tom Freeman-Keel
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Based on the true story of the Druce - Portland case, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an Interesting book about the Druce case. In the late 1800s, Anna Maria Druce claimed that the Fifth Duke of Portland (Welbeck Abbey) had led a double life as her father-in-law, a furniture salesman by the name of Thomas Druce. She claimed that the duke had faked his death of his second identity so that he could carry on living his aristocratic lifestyle at Welbeck Abbey.
The book reveals how Anna Maria Druce sets out to prove how her son, Sydney Druce, was the rightful heir. It follows the story of two families and leads up to the court proceedings.
This type of book can often be too complex so I was pleased to discover that this book was written in an easy-to-read style and the details and characters are easy to keep track of. The court proceedings were interesting to read about, but I thought the story prior to the court case was the most interesting part of the book.

This is the most delicious Panettone that I've ever tasted. The texture is light, fluffy, and it's bursting with fruity flavour. It smells and tastes divine.
Makes a very nice gift, especially because it comes packaged in a festive, reusable tin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing Music, 23 Jan. 2015
This review is from: A Concert of Angels (Audio CD)
I bought two copies of this CD - my Mum requested it after finding the music very useful in relaxation classes - I also bought one for my sister-in-law who likes to listen to relaxing music to help her drift off to sleep at bedtime.
Much appreciated.

Zumba Fitness Women's Cut it Out Drawstring Backpack - Cut and Paste Purple, One Size
Price: £23.08

5.0 out of 5 stars Zumba Bag, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A beautifully made bag - I love the bright design. It's easy to use and easy to close.
The material is strong and good quality and the same applies to the zipped pockets and drawstring handles.
There are two zipped compartments - a larger one on the outside and a smaller one on the inside.
It's big enough to hold gym gear, swimming costume/towel, trainers and more.
Fairly expensive, but worth it.


[(Blue Moon Day)] [ By (author) Anne Fine ] [October, 2014]
[(Blue Moon Day)] [ By (author) Anne Fine ] [October, 2014]
by Anne Fine
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Blue Moon Day, 20 Jan. 2015
Sam's having a blue moon day - one of those occasional days where he has managed to convince his Mum that he is too ill to go to school - it happens once in a blue moon.
On this particular day, Sam spends the morning reading a book of short stories. Sam not only learns a lot about the characters in the stories, it also makes him think about himself and understand things that happen in his own family life.
Interesting and well-written stories. Some of the stories have a serious tone, but 'Showing Round Mr Hastings' is a hoot!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tugs at your heartstrings, 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a touching tribute to the heroic dogs that played a part in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
From the story of Roselle, a guide dog who lead her owner to safety out of the World Trade Centre, to the search-and-rescue dogs who scoured the rubble, Isabel George details the incredible animal-human emotional bond.
This true story is a poignant reminder of the tragedy of 9/11. It's a tale of bravery and courage, and the truly inspiring loyalty between dog and owner/handler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves a great finish on natural wood, 3 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Bona Mega Matt - 5 Litre
This product is great - it's easy to apply and leaves a professional finish. The only downside is the cost, but the product goes a long way and the results are long-lasting. I think it's also available in smaller sized containers.
Surfaces should be sanded back to bare wood and free of all dust, wax, oils, or any other previous covering.
It can be applied with either a brush or roller and it dries really quickly. I recommend applying two or three thin coats. Mega doesn't have a strong smell to it, like most varnishes tend to have.
I used this product on some oak floorboards in a previous house and the floor still looked great after several years of hard wear. I've recently used it on a pine kitchen table and just wondering why I didn't do it ages ago. Up to now, I've had to sand and wax the kitchen table on a fairly regular basis, mainly because wax doesn't really protect a surface for that long, especially one that has a lot of use.
This product is resistant to scratches, scuff marks and general wear. Once applied, it dries fairly quickly and leaves a slight sheen finish. It gives a protective coating and the natural wood markings really stand out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light and entertaining, 27 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm enjoying the Ivy Lane series. I'm not overly keen on the publishing books in instalments idea, although I was intrigued to see if/how it works. So far, I would say that It seems to work fine with this story - each story ends satisfactorily and the details to remember for the next one is fairly easy to keep track of. I'm looking forward to the last part of the story and not worrying that I will have forgotten any complex plot details.
The whole story centres on Tilly Parker. In Part 2, Tilly is continuing to settle into her new surroundings and beginning to enjoy life with her new friends at Ivy Lane garden allotments. This instalment follows the shenanigans at the allotment when a TV crew arrive. Tilly's hidden past still lurks in the background of the story.
So far, this is a light-hearted read. The characters are entertaining and easy to warm to. I'm interested in finding out what happens to Tilly, and what the big secret is, but also find the other characters equally as interesting.
