"Rescue" by Anita Shreve

"Rescue" is finished....yay for me!!!

Can't say too much about it as one of our bookclub rules is that we aren't allowed to discuss the book before our get together.  Sometimes we do break that rule tho...

Let me just say it was good to read a story that was nice and simple.  I didn't need to keep turning back to refresh my memory about which character was doing what and neither did I have to read a whole lot of facts.  Looking forward to our get together and seeing what dessert Judy has made, oops I mean discussing the book.

Did you get any new books for Christmas?  One of my gifts was a book voucher, so I am looking forward to spending that.  I know it will be tricky because if you don't choose wisely you can't return it, but I'm up for the challenge....

Now to get one of those books finished that I've been reading forever...

PS We were lucky enough to have 2 toddlers to share Christmas day with this year.  Here is my 15 month old great nephew exploring my sister's Christmas tree..Christmas is so exciting with young children.

Hope Big M is feeling better. At least you were able to be home on Christmas Day. We've got some nice warm days coming up, so hopefully you'll have some time to sit outside and read a few pages - ignore that ironing pile. xx

I haven't read this one. I have, strangely, read "The Pilot's Wife", which I bought on a plane trip... not a good read for a plane. I didn't love it, but I do remember the storyline pretty well. I think that I found it a little depressing, and even though I read it before I had children, I did understand that there are some ties you will never sever, even if it means living unhappily with someone you don't want to be living with.

At the moment I am reading "Uncle Fred in the Springtime", by P.G. Wodehouse. I've only just picked it up really, but it looks quite wonderful so far.

Haven't read "The Pilot's Wife" but have read another of hers called "Light on Snow". Looks like she's probably not an author you'd want to read if you were feeling a bit down. Let me know if you'd recommend "Uncle Fred...".

I was a bit down from memory, breaking up with some boy who was of course the love of my life at the time. I'll let you know about Uncle Fred, although I just started reading some murder mystery as well, so I might get sidetracked! My brain really prefers the trashy/easy stuff :)
