    Some Kind of Fairy Tale is a very English story. A story of woods and clearings, a story of folk tales and family histories. It is as if Neil Gaiman and Joanne Harris had written a fairy tale together.... It is Christmas afternoon and Peter Martin gets an unexpected phone call from his parents, asking him to come round. It pulls him away from his wife and children and into a bewildering mystery. His sister, Tara. Not so unusual you might think, this is Christmas after all, a time when families get together. But 20 years ago, Tara took a walk into the woods and never came back.

    It is the summer of 1976, the hottest since records began, and a young man leaves behind his student days and learns how to grow up. A first job in a holiday camp beckons. But with political and racial tensions simmering under the cloudless summer skies there is not much fun to be had. And soon there is a terrible price to be paid for his new found freedom and independence. A price that will come back to haunt him, even in the bright sunlight of summer. As with Some Kind of Fairy Tale, Graham Joyce has crafted a deceptively simple tale of great power.

    • Enjoyed this. Nostalgic and the reader's interpretation of the characters was very good

    A young couple are caught in an avalanche during a skiing holiday in the French Alps. They struggle back to the village and find it deserted. As the days go by they wait for rescue, and then try to leave. But each time they find themselves back in the village. And, increasingly, they are plagued by visions and dreams and the realization that perhaps no one could have survived the avalanche.

    It's time to rethink the rules that keep us from living life in full color...and break them! Time is too short not to eat a slice of cake for breakfast - especially our own birthday cake, if we are blessed to live another year to enjoy it. Rules are made to be broken! Harm no one, but break a small rule every day, and find yourself feeling more vibrant than ever!
