Good account of a very strange Latin Catholic cult and Maria Hall's time there as a nun. Admirable that Maria Hall has adjusted to well to ordinary life and that she has forgiven; a good life lesson here.
Written with spirit a most useful account of the Palmar de Troye cult.

A bit disappointing, scrappy presentation but maybe this is because I was rather expecting a different format of book, not keen on the 'cuttings' type of presentation

This review is from: Welcome (Hardcover)
Daft story but wonderful descriptions of the West Indies and life there in the 1930s. Isabel C. Clarke was a recommended writer to Catholic schoolgirls so I read the odd one now as an adult in late middle age as a critic.

Bought this after reading a biography of Mario Lanza, a most popular singer when I was growing up. This CD bears out the opinion that Lanza had he remained a 'classical' singer would have been a renowned opera singer and recitalist. Lovely CD.

This review is from: Kick Kennedy (Hardcover)
Excellent biography; begins Kathleen Kennedy's story when she first arrived in London as daughter of the US Ambassador continuing until her tragic death in an air crash
This book is particularly strong on the lead up to WW2 and the progress of the war in context of the attitude of Joseph Kennedy, the growing political awareness of Kathleen Kennedy and the death of Billy Hartington in the latter days of the war.
It is a book that will stand up to re-reading especially for its account of WW2.
The story of Kathleen Kennedy is a sad one but here she is justly re-claimed for history.
