5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant books - bring history to life, 30 July 2014

I loved both of these books. I grew up in Glasgow but knew nothing about the Clydebank blitz. It wasn't history - just the recent past which people wanted to forget. I have granddaughters the age of the children which brought home just how awful it must be for children caught up in war. I've gone on to read about the Scottish Italian community as a result of reading these books

rambled a bit - enjoyed it but felt it was padded out. Loved the desciption of Sicily but felt the end was predictable.

I've read most of what Joanna trollope has written over the years and this was not her best. Ok holiday read but wouldn't bother recommending it

great product - exactly as advertised and arrived promptly. On two little bay trees at the entrance with some wired on satsumas. Look like mini orange trees. First lot of batteries still working despite the wind and rain.

Brings light into very awkward places. Can be taken down at will
Great service, very well packed. A white cord could be an advantage

1.0 out of 5 stars Big disappointment, 12 Nov 2013
This review is from: Le Week-End [DVD] (DVD)
What relief to read bad reviews of this mediocre film. I even dragged my husband and kept sneaking looks at my phone to see how much more we had to endure . The newspapers loved it - we did not !! On the other hand in the same week saw Sunshine onLeith and Philomena. Totally different from each other and both brilliant movies.

Not the sort of book I usually read but I couldn't put this down - scary in bits with an underlying menace right till the last few chapters
