    Story

    This story set in Nigeria is so readable and listening to it read by Adjoa Andoh was so lovely and the imagery and feeling it produced was very real. I enjoyed the characters of Blessing and her Grandmother and Celestine especially. Blessings mother although present throughout the novel always seemed to be on the fringes of her life and maybe had difficulty showing and or responding to emotions. The political climate and time of the novel made it difficult to exist and the life of Ezikiel was very difficult as a result. The fact that the story was told through the eyes of Blessing made it more enjoyable.
    The role of Grandmother as the local midwife and what that entailed was very interesting to me as a midwife and I really enjoyed these sections of the story.
    Life was hard for women and the domestic violence elements of the story Celestine endured were not pleasant especially when they were considered necessary by other female members of the family.
    The narration was fantastic and totally made the story I so so enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.

    Blessing and her brother Ezikiel adore their larger-than-life father, their glamorous mother, and their comfortable life in Lagos. But all that changes when their father leaves them for another woman: Their mother is fired from her job at the Royal Imperial Hotel - only married women can work there - and soon they have to quit their air-conditioned apartment to go and live with their grandparents in a compound in the Niger Delta. Adapting to life with a poor countryside family is a shock beyond measure.

    I enjoyed this book but would not say best I ever read enjoyed the narration and the elements of the supernatural especially at the end when I could see how it fitted together. It was a good read and I would recommend it. This is the first book in the series and will be interested to see what next one will bring.

    The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of James Oswald's gripping new Inspector McLean crime thriller Natural Causes, read by the actor Ian Hanmore. A young girl's mutilated body is discovered in a sealed room. Her remains are carefully arranged, in what seems to have been a cruel and macabre ritual, which appears to have taken place over 60 years ago.For newly appointed Edinburgh Detective Inspector Tony McLean this baffling cold case ought to be a low priority - but he is haunted by the young victim and her grisly death.

    Story

    I love Tracy Chevalier books and have read several. I like the way she tells the story and makes it interesting. I really enjoyed this and the way the story moved forward and to learn and feel part of the hard life early American settlers had. The life of the Quakers was not a particularly easy one and also the choices available to single women was not easy. I enjoyed reading about the Quilting and the various patterns. The story dragged on a bit towards the end but I did enjoy it and I would recommend it.

    Laurel Lefkow reads the stunning new novel from the bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring. When modest Quaker Honor Bright sails from Bristol with her sister, she is fleeing heartache for a new life in America, far from home. But tragedy leaves her alone and vulnerable, torn between two worlds and dependent on the kindness of strangers. Life in 1850s Ohio is precarious and unsentimental. The sun is too hot, the thunderstorms too violent, the snow too deep. The roads are spattered with mud and spit. The woods are home to skunks and porcupines and raccoons.

    Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed - no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.

An uproariously funny novel of modern life, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is a triumphant return of our favourite Everywoman.
