A Good Yarn By Debbie Macomber

For me this was a page turner. I had thought that this would last me about a week of bedtime reads, well it lasted two days, or should I say nights! - I finished it in the wee hours of this morning, and then went to work all bleary-eyed, but it was worth it.

These books are, to me pure escapism. There is such sensitivity is the writing, describing the lives and loves of the characters, their hopes, achievements and disappointments. Not to mention their friendships, forged out of meeting complete strangers to pursue a new hobbie, and in someways this echo's the life of a Book Crosser!

The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans

A really delightful and gentle read. The story a couple and their daughter Jenna,and an important friendship, showing that meaningful friendships can develop quickly from complete strangers. This story in this book will remain with me long after I have sent it off traveling. It is also one of my favourite's for the year.

The story gives us a message. That we should value and treasure things, for when they are gone it is too late.

Will of Thomas Heath 1727 - 1812

I have been in cotact, via Genes Reunited, with someone who descends from the same 5 x great grandfather as Stuart. I was rather lucky to receive four scans of the copy of the will of Thomas Heath 1726 - 1812. How wonderful is that?

Isn't that simply fascinating? Also loaded to Flickr
