I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
We've Come to Take You Home - Susan Gandar

Two girls, Jess and Sam from different times - First World War and present day. Their lives are colliding as Sam keeps blacking out to find herself being Jess. This is a beautifully written book, part timeslip, part ghost story. Great descriptions of life as a maid of all work i.e. a general dogsbody who has to do everything, hardly any time off and certainly not much sleep. So much drudgery and for little reward plus don't even look at the family let alone speak! I loved reading this book and didn't want it to end - enchanting. Probably the best book I've read this year.
