Some time ago I discovered Susie Vereker’s blog and was intrigued by the title of one of her books – ‘Pond Lane and Paris’.
Yesterday the package from Amazon was delivered and I was hooked. In the first couple of pages I was immediately drawn to the heroine, Laura, and couldn’t put the book down till it was finished.
If you like Joanna Trollope you’ll like Susie Vereker but I’m not going to give away any more details about the story.
Having a book in English completely distracted me from my resolve to read in French. I’ve borrowed Gerald Durrell’s “Ma Famille et Autres Animaux” from the library (in large print) but it’s slow going.
Yvette has lent me Caligula (Camus) and another play, Clerambard, by Marcel Aymé (whom I’d never heard of), so, you see, that’s why I haven’t had so much time to write or read blogs recently.
Meanwhile, I apologise for the lack of anything interesting to report regarding daily life chez-nous.
