AugustAcquired: Borrowed from the Cruise Ship Library Format: Hardcover, pages Review: Both Henry and Eleanor are presented as one dimensional figures governed by their physical passions to the exclusion of almost all other considerations, especially during the first half of the book.
August 25, Genre: Borrowed from Cruise Ship Library Format: A good overview of major themes in the lives of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh including their interests, parenting and social lives.
For readers who have read other books about the royal family, however, there is little new material and a lot of repetition.
The book also devotes more than one chapter to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, another topic that has been the subject of numerous other books. AugustGenre: A beautifully written novel about the artist Vanessa Bell and her sister Virginia Woolf and the origins of the Bloomsbury group.
I liked how the changing culture of the times are woven into the story including post-impressionism and the prominence of the younger generation of European royalty after the death of Edward VII. Fascinating afterword by the author about the lives and careers of the characters after the end of the novel.
Book 7 by Winston Graham Genre: Historical Fiction Date Read: AugustFormat: Paperback, pages Acquired: One of my favourite books in the Poldark series. I have not yet watched Season 4 of Poldark on PBS so I did not know how events would unfold in the novel and enjoyed both the surprises and the heavily foreshadowed developments.
It was good to see the return of Verity, one of my favourite characters from the early books to counsel Ross and Demelza as their marriage faces difficulties yet again.
The relationship between Morwenna and Drake continues to be touching and tragic. In addition to the engaging characters, Graham captures the atmosphere and changing culture of the times.
For example, there is a scene on a visit to London where Demelza tries the latest fashions and Ross mistakes the empire waist dresses of the early s for petticoats as they are so different from heavier 18th century fashions.
I look forward to finishing the series. Some of the dramatic embellishments are more convincing than others.
A fun read with a satisfying ending but some unbelievable scenes. SeptemberAcquired: The book swap table on the cruise ship Format: Paperback, pages Genre: A peaceful, relaxing read, much like the film based on the novel.Articles, books, and resources for Christian teens, parents, and youth workers.
