Weekly Book Recap #104


It's been a quiet week, and I find it hard to believe we've reached the final days of March.  I'm looking forward to the new seasons of Call the Midwife and Mr. Selfridge, which start tonight.

This past week's posts:
Tuesday:  First Chapter Intro
Wednesday:   Waiting on . . .
Friday:  Friday 56 & Book Beginning

Now, the latest book recap, which is being shared on these blogs:

A Murder of Magpies A Murder of Magpies has the ingredients you expect in a first-rate mystery: an intelligent protagonist turned sleuth, a quirky cast of supporting characters, and a liberal amount of red herrings. An insider look at the publishing industry and humorous scenarios add to the reader's enjoyment of this debut mystery.
18005255  Cavendon Hall  is an engrossing family saga chronicling the lives of two British families--the noble Inghams and their faithful Swanns, the clan who has served them for generations. The intertwined histories of these British families are revealed against the backdrop of the years leading up to World War I, and ends just after the war, as class and society in Great Britain are changing.

The story's conclusion left me wanting to know more about the characters and how their lives are affected by social change. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel, Cavendon Women, which will undoubtedly provide more detail about the strong female characters Barbara Taylor Bradford has created in this new series.
