The Girl With No Name – Diney Costeloe

Interesting read about the some tragedies of WW II. The story follows a young German girl from her journey on the Kindertransport, to the Blitz, to after the war. Heart warming and harrowing with lots of twists and turns, I would recommend this book.


My Grape Year – Laura Bradbury

If you are interested in learning about France or are already in love with it, this is a must read.  Laura Bradbury brilliantly writes about her year, as exchange student, in the Burgundy region of France. My Grape Year is an entertaining and informative book. I look forward to reading the other three books in the Grape Series.


A Strange Beginning – Gretta Curran Browne

I found myself loving this book. I picked it up on a whim. I honestly had no idea how interesting and quirky Lord Byron’s life was. I’m looking forward to the second book.


House By the River – Lena Manta

This book is about the individual lives of five sisters, their relationships with each other and with their mother. Each sister’s story was very similar and sometimes a bit tedious. I had some difficulty remember what happened to which sister. That being said, I  did finish the book and I’m glad I did.


Tuscan Roots – Angela Petch

I enjoyed this book. I liked the writing style and history lessons are never a bad thing. I believe the story is based the lives of real people, making it all the more interesting. I highly recommend Tuscan Roots.  Bonus: there is a sequel, Now and Then in Tuscany.

  1. Thanks so much for this lovely review, Jayne. I really hope you enjoy the sequel! I am about to start on the third in the series, which will also have a world war 2 story at it’s heart – as well as other stories. On December 1st I am launching another book, on a completely different theme. I’m hoping it will be gently humorous – a novella about two elderly ladies who get up to all kinds of scrapes in their retirement at the seaside. I wrote in in memory of my best friend who died from ovarian cancer. We used to muck about together and call each other Mavis and Dot… fingers crossed it will make readers smile. Any profits will go to cancer research. Thanks once again for reviewing my first novel. And I hope you feel well today. x
