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.
The Lost Ones - Anita Frank

Stella lost her fiancé during WW1 and is distraught. She goes to stay with her sister and finds secrets and strange goings on which helps to take her mind off her own misery. I would have given this book 4 stars because I really enjoyed the story, despite the overlong descriptions of everything. The amount of modern day terminology spoilt it for me - sometimes I thought the characters were from 2017, not 1917! It could have been reduced by about a third and would have been much better, in my opinion. I did enjoy the ghostly goings on an style of writing.
