If you enjoy good early English history try reading books by Conn Iggulden. Great reads, interesting and factual!
Stead's books did not disappoint me so far. They are a source of a beautiful English that is a rare occasion for nowadays. Every sentence draw the picture, display emotions or circumstances, it is clear and a simple joy. What a shame she is not as popular as before. Her short stories are biographical and presented in timely order. How many of us can deliver our story is such a way? Lovely read.
One of my favourite books
Fancy Nancy Collector's Quintet
Neither Ethel Turner nor Mary Grant Bruce seems to have a substantial biography, which is not unreasonable as, individually, although good authors and with at least superb book, Seven Little Australians, by Turner, they were not great authors. However, this is a fascinating joint biography as the comparisons and contrasts between them reveal and reflect much about Australian society in the early 20th century. Turner focused on Sydney, while Bruce focused on the Victorian bush; the former had her characters grow up, while the latter largely keeps them child-like even despite one marriage; the former was matriarchal while the latter was patriarchal; and they were both active soon after Federation and through World War I. It is a finely written, carefully researched book by Brenda Niall, who became one of Australia's finest biographers in my view.
The book arrived in perfect order, when it was expected to arrive, this is a birthday present for my grandchild. I ordered it early as I didn't want to miss out for her big day. I will be ordering again in the future
This was a great book really enjoyed it
Book was in almost as new condition.
The book was as good as new, perfect. I will be purchasing more of Richard Osman writings, a very good read.
Maiden Voyages : women and the golden age of transatlantic travel. This book is very interesting in that it is virtually a historical account of women involved in a predominantly male environment - seafarers. Centers around the many women who went to sea either to work or to seek another life in the USA - as indeed did Donald Trumps mother from Scotland. The book relates to mainly the Cunard shipping Line and the evolvement of Cruising. I as a past Purser on Cruise Liners found this so interesting and not at all what I expected. I recommend this to everyone interested in the history of life at sea - not just ex seamen.
The service provided by Book Grocer was excellent - prompt and efficient.
Disturbing reality of man's inhumanity to others.
This is just what I wanted, with easy to see lines and quality paper.
