Earthly Possessions (Arena Books) by Anne Tyler

1.0 out of 5 stars First and last, 9 Jun 2014
This is the first Anne Tyler novel I have read, and it will surely be the last. Lauded as America's best living author I was looking forward to a great read. What I found was a story and style of writing which, if submitted to a publisher under another name, would have been classed as amateur and rejected. We are supposed to believe that Charlotte finds not one opportunity to escape her kidnapper, despite many times being in crowds or bars. How many bullets is he supposed to have? Any woman worth her salt would take a chance and leg it. Really disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cover, 21 Oct 2013
These are very sweet cream/red cushion covers in a larger size which are hard to find. So pleased I'm going to buy the same ones with the red background.
Allotment and Garden Guide: A Monthly Guide to Bet&hellip by Twigs Way
This is a great little book. Wondering what to buy my Dad for his 95th birthday I remembered how much he loved his allotment when he came home from the war. I remember helping him on his allotment in the 50s when I was only about 4 or 5 happily following behind dropping pea seeds into the holes he'd made, and this book just brought memories flooding back. Although unable to garden now, my Dad can once again enjoy a hobby he loved so much.
