Operation Kingfisher by Hilary Green
Operation Kingfisher by Hilary Green
I first started reading Hilary's novels, as she is a personal friend but continued because I enjoyed them so much. I have now read them all. "Operation Kingfisher' didn't disappoint me. Her research of her subject matter is impeccable. I am a French specialist and have supervised the coursework of A.level students, who were interested in writing about aspects of life in France during World War 2. It is, therefore, a subject with which I am relatively familiar. Even so, I expanded my knowledge about the importance of the canal system and the lifestyle of the Maquis through this novel. I enjoyed the plot and appreciated Hilary's style of writing too.
Happy Birthday (Doodle) - E-mail Gift&hellip by Amazon EU S..r.l.
Three of our grandchildren live 230 miles away from us, in Essex. Their ages range from five to twelve. They do have an Amazon wish list but they love these gift certificates and so does their mother!o The decision about how to spend the money occupies them for some time!!
The Kingmaker's Daughter (Cousins War 4) by Philippa Gregory
4.0 out of 5 stars I learned a lot!, 29 Sep 2013
I knew very little about Anne Neville and learned a lot from Philippa Gregory's novel about her brief, often sad life. Because the author writes from the point of view of the main character in the Cousins War novels, you gain a valuable insight into the different perspective on events of the Yorkist and Lancastrian supporters.
