Every Easter from the age of about 6 my Mum would buy me a new outfit with matching hat for Easter Sunday - it then became my Sunday best outfit for Church for as long as it would fit me! No photos unfortunately ...

Linda6885 has just posted this new topic on main page, and as you will not have had an email prompt, I'm copying it here. Thank you.


https://www.amazon.com/Varina-Novel-Charles-Frazier/dp/0062405985/ref=sr_1_2?crid=3D4V4DO1GJH7B&keywords=cold+mountain+by+charles+frazier&qid=1553022592&s=books&sprefix=cold+Mountains%2Caps%2C344&sr=1-2
This was sometimes a heartbreaking story of post civil war in the old south. It is written by Charles Frazier who most of us know for the riveting novel (and movie) Cold Mountain. I think Cold Mountain is by far his better novel, but I couldn't put this down.

ChasingRainbows posted a new topic on main page, so am copying here. Thank you for your recommendations and links:

I just subscribed to this forum. I get newsletters from Early Bird Books and Book Bub sites. Early Bird Books is showing these biographies of women - some famous and some almost unheard of.

I enjoyed shorthand also. Pitman's was the order of the day at my college and I still use it today some 50 years on!

Hi Martina
Thank you for your recommendations, which I have added to our Authors' List which is linked to this page/section.
I've read quite a few of Peter Robinson's books and really enjoyed them.
Thank you again, and I'm sure others will be in touch with their comments and if they have read books by these authors.
kind regards

Hi everyone
Another new topic - which members will not have had an email prompt for, so am copying everything here also:

"Where the crawdads sing" has been recommended by peacegoddess: Relatively new book. First novel by Delia Owens. Set in North Carolina during 50’s and 60’s. Really wonderful characters and writing. Hope someone has read it so we can discuss

I've added this author to our linked page.
A big thank you for this recommendation.
regards

Hi Everyone,
Sam2 has just posted the following recommendation which I'm copying here as you would not have had an email prompt. I will add this author to our linked list also.

"I just started reading this book after a friend highly recommended it to me. This book is fascinating. It’s an autobiography — part graphic novel, scrapbook, photo album. An easy read about a very difficult subject — Nora grew up in a small town in Germany long after WWII but the war still affects her life."

Here’s a preview: https://books.google.com/books/about/Belonging.html?id=S8NWDwAAQBAJ

Here’s some info about the book: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Belonging/Nora-Krug/9781476796628
