An Unholy Communion (The Monastery Murders)
An Unholy Communion (The Monastery Murders)
Price: £5.58

5.0 out of 5 stars I am pleased to have found a new series to read., 12 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been pleased to discover a new author. I have enjoyed the settings, this one in the north of England and the religious back story to the investigations. I am also enjoying that these are set in the present, although all have links to the past and historical events.

4.0 out of 5 stars The story behind the mini-series, 17 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was first introduced to the work of Masters and Johnson whilst studying for my degree a long time ago. I watched the mini-series and wanted to know more about the real life Masters and Johnson. This book provides a good insight into their lives, and details the complex relationship between the two main characters and also how they had to deal with societies' standards. They did massively contribute to the "sexual revolution" in the 60s and 70s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Judith Kerr, 25 Dec 2013
I saw a programme about Judith Kerr on the TV and was fascinated. I then bought all 3 of her books. They were all so interesting about the life she led before, during and, in this book, after the war. They might be regarded as written for children but I found them fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars My grandchildren love these socks., 11 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The box arrived on time and my twin granddaughters love the socks. I had bought a box at an agricultural show and somehow managed to lose the box so was delighted they were available to order on Amazon! I had told my grandchildren I had the socks so I had to deliver them.


Closest Companion: The Unknown Story of the Intimate Friendship Between Franklin Roosevelt and Margaret Suckley
Closest Companion: The Unknown Story of the Intimate Friendship Between Franklin Roosevelt and Margaret Suckley
by Geoffrey C. Ward
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight into the private life of Franklin Roosevelt, 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I went to see the film, Hyde Park on the Hudson, not knowing what it was about and found out it was partly about the visit of King Edward VIII and Queen Elizabeth to America before the Second World War. It was based on the story of the relationship between Franklin Roosevelt and Margaret Suckley, as revealed in her diaries discovered after her death. This made me want to read the actual book, which consists of extracts from her diaries and letters between herself and Franklin. The book is fascinating, revealing details about Franklin's life in Washington and at home. It is amazing how Franklin could juggle the demands of the presidency with a private life away from the spotlight - so different from today, exemplified by the fact he was always photographed in public without his wheelchair, and that the only two photographs of him in it were taken by Margaret.
