The book I hope to start tonight is
Joanna Trollope is a favourite author of mine. I like the light hearted but at the same time tongue in the cheek humour. The handling of human relationships and everyday happenings within all normal families. These are spot on!
"Toby's mother said that when Eleanor came he'd have to go down to the ground floor and help her with the lift.
Toby said - sulkily because he was angry with her for something he couldn't quite put his finger on - 'She doesn't need help'.
His mother was standing in front of the mirror she had propped on top of a chest in her bedroom. She was arranging her hair in a complicated kind of knot, and she had a hairclip between her teeth.
Through it she said without looking at him 'Toby, this isn't about need. It's about manners'.
Am so looking forward to reading this book.
The last couple of weeks have been so so on the book reading front. I couldn't finish two books and this is something that rarely happens - when it does I get really upset because first of all getting the books is a huge problem and when I get them and don't like them that becomes for me such a waste of time and resources.......
This is one such book that will not disappoint though!
