An Intelligent cookery book! I enjoy Xanthe's article in the Saturday telegraph. They are always topical, interesting and sometimes
challenging

This review is from: SUFFOLK SUMMER (Paperback)
When we came to Suffolk in the 70's it seemed out of step with many parts of Britain.This book reminds me of that feeling of coming home--which I think John Appleby found post-war. Names and places still familiar to us today makes this a timeless book! One to come back too!

The Book Thief (Definitions)
by Markus Zusak
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

4.0 out of 5 stars A book about love, 24 Jan. 2013

With death as its theme it's a very enjoyable read! It reflects human courage and strength in the face of intolerable hatred and ugliness.With a positive rather than happy ending I decide it was very well written with clearly defined characters

5.0 out of 5 stars Similarities with Patricia Highsmith, 23 Mar. 2011
This review is from: The Woman Before Me (Paperback)
A compelling reading as the mind of a criminal is released through the pages.Not an easy read at times if you like happy endings with loose ends all tied up. Ruth has experience as a probation officer to be sure of her characters and no hint of sentimentality pervades the pages,making the character unsympathetic very like Highsmith's Tom Ripley.I shall look forward
to her new book this summer.
