The Flyer (The Pitsford Series Book 1) by Stuart Harrison
5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling., 28 Jun 2014
I loved this book and couldn't put it down. It tells the story of a young man from a poor background who is sent to a minor public school by his grandfather. He does not fit in, but does take advantage of the education. He then starts to be interested in engines and opens a garage servicing the very early motor cars. This leads him to meeting other young people who accept him into their glittering pre-WW1 lives. There are many twists and turns in his loves and friendships going into the war, and quite harrowing descriptions of life as a young officer in the Flying Corps. I would not spoil the story by describing them, but it kept me reading late into the night to see what would happen next… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value., 31 May 2014
This case fits the phone perfectly and does not obscure the camera. It looks a bit cheap, but for the price it's great value. So, you get what you pay for!

Set against the backdrop of the miners' strike, this book charts the changing fortune of a young housewife who discovers her own self worth. Her old school friend returns to the village as a teacher, but it is Mandy whose growth is the centre of the story. Her marriage fails but that is not the main story. I felt a real empathy for Mandy, willing her to succeed, but hoping she wouldn't settle for the easy romantic story. I really enjoyed this book.
