4.0 out of 5 stars Bittersweet but also beautiful, 15 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bittersweet (Kindle Edition)
I loved 'The Thorn Birds' but feel nothing Colleen has written since has had the same emotional punch. However, 'Bittersweet' is a saga of dramatic content, full of Australian history during the 20's and 30's. Two sets of female twins, with the same father but different mothers, embark together on a career in nursing in New South Wales. We follow the fortunes and misfortunes of each girl and their relationships with each other and the men in their lives. The book is packed to the gunnels with so much story it is sometimes difficult to keep track of everyone. I recommend this book to all Australian readers and anyone else in the world that has an affinity with Australia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Richard Madeley does it again!, 15 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This second psychological thriller from Richard Madeley does not disappoint. A sequel to his much acclaimed first novel 'Someday I'll find you', this follows the child character Stella from the first book into 1950's America as a beautiful young, highly qualified student of psychopathy. Richard weaves that political and historically vibrant time into his narrative. A rich and fascinating time to set a stunning crime novel which will have you turning the pages as your eyes widen with fear and amazement. A rollicking good read for summer holiday beaches. Just be careful who is sitting next to you on the beach!


Eve and Mary: The Search for Lost Beauty and Sensuality
Eve and Mary: The Search for Lost Beauty and Sensuality
by Frank Shapiro
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.63

5.0 out of 5 stars A new view on an old religious argument, 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Frank Shapiro examines our perception of love and sensual beauty through the religious images of Eve and Mary Magdalene over the centuries. Frank raises the question, 'Why has there not been a female Pope?' and then he takes us through history examining when these two feminine role models fell in and out of favour, their image vilified by male church leaders. His evidence is found in religious art and how this changed to accommodate the con-current church doctrines. Frank implies that these women have become the scapegoats for all the sinful errors of mankind. 'Eve ate the forbidden apple; Mary was a prostitute. Their sins incurred the wrath of god so they had no place in Church hierarchy. This view has changed and see-sawed through the ages and the evidence is still out there. This book provides a talking-point and a fresh view-point in an age-old religious argument.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teenage mystery with appeal to all ages., 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
June Winton has a real talent for writing mystery stories with a twist. This story is written for young adults but would appeal to all ages. It includes history from WW2 which may surprise many people. June's characters are very believable and the plot keeps you turning the pages. I would recommend June's stories to all book lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Promises to keep me reading, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, this short story makes me promise to keep reading everything written by Elizabeth Haynes. She is the new Mistress of Mystery. Every book she writes is a gripping page-turner. This short story introduces some of the characters in her latest novel 'Under a Silent Moon', out now in Kindle, the paper-back launches in May. Elizabeth also uses this as a springboard for two personal passions of her own, namely Spanish Rescue Dogs and help for illegal immigrant children.
Well done Elizabeth, on every count.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's not me - its the birds., 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My visiting squirrel wrecked 2 standard bird feeders, so I bought this instead. That was several weeks ago. It is filled with lovely peanuts which previously would have disappeared in a few days. But so far (several weeks now) the birds have not touched any of the nuts. Anyone got any ideas for re-training apparently dim birds to feed from a different style feeder??

I write, and have bought a lot of self-help books in the past. This one is the d-----s b-----s hope you know what that is. The language is simple and the concepts easy to absorb. I am reading it as avidly as I would a good page-turning novel.
Very well done, Helen Corner and Co.

Good to have these in the house. I am a carer for my husband. He has 6 carers a day minimum visit him. If they have even just a trace of a cold etc., I give them one to wear. Also do so myself. He has not caught a cold from anyone since I started keeping these in the cupboard.
