A Good Book is Nothing to Sneeze At.

So nice to have a good book, one you can disappear into, another world, another reality. Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall created my alternate reality last week. An historical novel, a Man-Booker prize winner, the tale follows the life of Thomas Cromwell, the man who arranged Henry VIII's divorce so he could marry Ann Boleyn. Mantel plunges us into a rich world, an historically accurate world and a story with a new twist.

Other books I've enjoyed lately: The Queen's Fool by Phillipa Gregory, one of my favourite authors, I’ll Always Love You, by Anne Seymour, the story of the Pacific theatre in World War II, the GG winner Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger, and a peppy mystery Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
