Doing two reviews here.
BEYOND DOWNTON ABBEY VOLUME I
I was expecting something on the Downton lines, but what I got was a concise, nicely crafted piece on great houses in Britain in the "Downton" manner. Details of its history, the present owners, website details, photographs of the houses and a potted history of each house.
For fans of manors, country houses, beautiful walks, scenery that is out if this world, this book is for you.
Needless to say I am a fan!
This book was a free download from My Love For Jane Austen FB page.
THREE MANY COOKS by Pam Anderson, Maggie Keet and Sharon Damelio
I didn't know there was a blog by this name but the book was such a joyful recital of the history of cooking in this family - I would say not just three women but the menfolk were involved and supportive as well as being good cooks in their own right.
Each chapter dealing with a part of their lives, ends with a family receipe, each one better than the last.
Made for a very mouth watering read.
This was sent to me by Edelweiss.
