Rector's Wife - I like books by British authors set in Britain and have read all of her books. Pleasant, non-demanding reads. Better than chick lit and yes she is related.
To 5-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits............Great read.
Review: The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling
All That I Am by Anna Funder. "None of us - teacher or taught- realised how an imagined life can sustain you as a possibility, a hope, and remain just that. Like parallel train tracks, it runs alongside, but will never meet the life you are living."
