4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and a welcome change, 17 Aug. 2004
After P D James previous excellent Adam Dalglish detective stories this first novel using the main character as a female detective Cordelia Grey, it made a welcome change. Well worth a read and definitely a page turner.

Very helpful images and detailed identification. Used alongside with Bernard Skinner's moth identification book and the Field Guide to Moths by Paul Waring and Martin Townsend this is a must have book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensible Guide, 12 Aug. 2004
This book was a complete treasure to find. Having only started my interest in Moths just over a year ago I had only been able to find books with insufficient information or one's that were too technical. The Moths of the British Isles by Bernard Skinner is an excellent book but too technical for a beginner and how often do you see moths with their wings spread out as in the images he gives for identification. With the Field Guide to Moths of Great Britain and Ireland the authors have been able to demonstrate what the moths would look like in different natural positions and described what I should be looking for in straight forward terms. It is an excellent reference book for beginners and the more experienced and is well worth reading. Well done I hope they go on to write other wildlife books in this format as I shall be in the queue to buy them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept me on my toes., 12 Aug. 2004
This review is from: The Tinder Box (Hardcover)
I have read all Minette Walters books and have been enthralled by them all and The Tinder Box was no exception. The only critisicm I have is that it was in too many chapters and you had to keep remembering whether you were in the present or what had been recent events. Otherwise a very good book which I gladly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless, 13 May 2003
This review is from: Twisted Strands (Paperback)
Following on with the life of Eveleen Hardcastle and her family from the author's previous book, Tangled Threads, this story takes the reader on a journey through the first World War. Showing how it wasn't only the men who went to fight that suffered and had their lives drastically changed but so did the women who were left behind to cope. It shows a compulsive timeless love from the women, that never changed while their menfolk were away and how they never gave up despite the uphill struggles they encountered from dealing with difficult relatives and a different type of working skill while longing for their loved ones to come home safely from the war.
Margaret Dickinson has once again produced a rivetting story full of love and intrigue. She uses the setting this time as close to Belvoir Castle in Grantham and once again the book is hard to put down once you have commenced reading, be prepared to shed a tear for the characters and warn your family that you will be ignoring them for a while. Excellent.
