Hello! A week of sunshine and showers! And the big coat is out and in use! Time to hibernate!!
And it’s been a good start to my Non Fiction November with 4 books read this week – and NONE bought!!! And i’ve only been tempted by Netgalley once as I try to get that all under control so maybe I’m now finally becoming a more responsible book shopper/collector/hoarder!! Nope, I don’t believe that either!
So here’s a quick look back at my week!
Woods: A Celebration by Robert Penn – 4 stars
The Way To The Sea by Caroline Crampton – 4 stars
Landfill by Tim Dee – 4 stars
The Five by Hallie Rubenhold – 5 stars
Just one visit to Netgalley this week..
THE MISSING LETTERS OF MRS BRIGHT by BETH MILLER
published by Bookouture
Publication date – January 2020
You’ve met Mrs Bright. She’s that nice woman who lives three doors down and always smiles at you in the mornings. She’s planning her thirtieth wedding anniversary with her husband. She wants to travel, read endless books and take beautiful pictures. She’s been waiting for this forever.
For the past twenty-nine years, Kay Bright’s days have had a familiar rhythm: she works in her husband’s stationery shop, cooks for her family, tries to remember to practice yoga, and every other month she writes to her best friend, Ursula, and Ursula replies. Kay could set her calendar by their letters: her heart lifts when the blue airmail envelope, addressed in Ursula’s slanting handwriting, falls gently onto the mat.
Ursula is the only one who knows Kay’s deepest secret, something that happened decades ago that could tear Kay’s life apart today. Ursula has always been the person Kay relies on. Knowing she will hear from Ursula is like being sure the sun will rise tomorrow.
And now Ursula has stopped writing. Three missing letters doesn’t sound like a lot, but Kay gets out her shoebox of notes from her best friend, in case there’s something she overlooked. Ursula seems fine, but the further back she goes, the more Kay begins to question every choice she has made in her life. Which might be why, at ten o’clock one morning, Kay walks out of her yellow front door with a just a rucksack, leaving her wedding ring on the table…
An emotional and heart-warming novel for anyone who knows it’s never too late to look for happiness. Fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, A Man Called Ove and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry will fall in love with this feel-good and moving story that shows you that the best friendships truly last forever.
What’s your bookish week been like?! Any new books I need to be adding to my mountain! Would love to hear about them!
