Eden's Garden by Juliet Greenwood
Eden's Garden by Juliet Greenwood
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Ms Greenwood's story about a magical but mysterious garden and the people, both live and carved in stone, who were caught up in its green web. Though gently told, with a steady pace, my interest was held as the contemporary detectives uncovered the complicated tale hidden in secrecy for many years. Each character was believable, in both time frames, and engaged my interest. I did get a little confused with who was who to start with as the story does jump about quite a bit but the jigsaw fitted together perfectly by the end.
Tristan and Iseult by JD Smith
Tristan and Iseult by JD Smith
The legendary sad tale of Tristan and Iseult told with spare, crisp prose, keeping the story taut and short. Very evocative of the time period with no sentimentality brought from the present day. A haunting melancholy of unfulfilled longing peppers every page and the brutality of that age is shown with unsparing detail. The imagery is immediate and vivid of each location, whether salt laden coast or the wet greenery of Wales. A recommended read if you want to understand why this famous legend has stood the test of time.
Not Funny Not Clever by Jo Verity
Not Funny Not Clever by Jo Verity
Great articulate read for a mature woman. We still have these interesting dilemma's. Love affairs don't stop just because you are that little bit older and married! Intelligent and witty, this was a diverting read and helped me escape into a different world.
