A Book Of Revelations by AC Burch

I was sent this book by the publisher (Homeport Press) for an honest review. A Book Of Revelations is a group of short stories by award winning author AC Burch, and the stories are all set around the areas that the author knows well: Provincetown and South Beach. The stories in this collection all focus…

The Pursuit Of Love by Nancy Mitford

In Zoe Heller’s introduction to this novel, she makes the point that people either love or hate a Mitford novel. I wonder if that’s really true? The Mitford sisters grew up in a rag tag bundle, on a manor in England, the children of Upper Class parents, in the early part of last century. Nancy,…

A Spool Of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler

This was the first Anne Tyler that I’ve read, which is pretty crazy considering how often she’s recommended to me, and I’m very happy to recommend her to you. If you read my movie blog, you’ll perhaps have read my review of the film adaptation of her book The Accidental Tourist, which I loved. If…

The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan

My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier

Perhaps it’s no surprise to find another review of a novel by Daphne Du Maurier on my blog. I love Rebecca so much, as I know a lot of you do too, and I read The House on the Strand a few months back, (you’ll find the review for that one HERE). This book is…
