Thanks so much for your kind comment, Lesley. I'm so glad you enjoyed Transatlantic!
Yes I think it is great that Mantel won again. I've read Bring up the Bodies and I loved it even more than Wolf Hall. I can't wait for book no. 3. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
I've just had another look at your book list. I have read 48 of your books listed on LT and have another 10 or so of them on my shelves waiting to be read! What do your tags mean U3A, etc?
Yes, we do have a lot of books in common. I have read Foal's Bread, which I really enjoyed, especially as I have horses. I have The Secret Scripture on my bookshelf. I'll push it up closer to the top of my overlarge tbr pile!
thumbed your review of the help. my review said much the same thing but with a whole lot more words.


I hope you don't mind if I add you to my interesting libraries - we have some good books in common on LT and a lot more that I have read prior to coming on line. I love your list of ten best Australian books. One of my favourites of all time is A Fortunate Life.
