My book review this week is a five-star review for Amanda in Malta: The Sleeping Lady by Darlene Foster. This is the eighth book in the Amanda Travels series, mysteries ideal for children aged 9 – 12 years. If you’re looking for an exciting children’s adventure set in a fascinating country, then I can’t recommend this highly enough.
I’m thrilled to share with you my five-star review of Life is a Mosaic, by Sally Cronin. It is a wonderful book of syllabic poetry – touching, insightful and a delight to read. I think it would make an ideal gift for any adult – or be a good way to give yourself a treat. I’m in a Covid lockdown in Canberra at the moment, so reading this was the perfect way to cheer myself up.
I’m delighted to share with you my five-star review of A Ghost and His Gold, by Roberta Eaton Cheadle. It is a dramatic historical paranormal story set in South Africa, and if you love history then I can’t recommend this highly enough.
