What have Doug and Elsie been reading lately?
Doug read Snow by John Banville.
Here's what he had to say:
There is nothing like Banville's prose to offer a break after all those serious books you've been reading. Oh, don't get me wrong, this is serious, as serious as a murder mystery gets. In Banville's skilled telling, county Wexford south of Dublin, is precisely the right spot, and 1957 the year of snow and ice.
Elsie read The Girl From the Channel Islands by Jenny Lecoat
Here's what she had to say:
Jenny Lecoats book transports you to World War 11 and the significant role of the Channel Islands in the war effort. Isolated from the allies, in the middle of the English Channel, brave against the German invaders.
