Alright you guys, you do know that Persephone Reading Weekend is coming up right? Nevermind that I still haven’t finished my book from the Virago Reading week but I’m jumping in on this readalong because I have a thing for those grey covered books.
Last year I read Mariana by Monica Dickens which I didn’t love as much as I had other Persphone books mainly because I think I was expecting something a bit different. I only have three books but they all sound good to me so I thought I’d reach out to you and maybe help me decide which book to read.
- Little Boy Lost by Marghanita Lanski. A poet returns to France to trace a child lost five years before.
- Someone At A Distance by Dorothy Whipple. A tale of a destruction of a marriage.
- Good Evening Mrs. Craven by Mollie Panter-Downes. Exploring aspects of English domestic life during the war.
These all sound so good don’t they?
What about you, are you participating and have you decided what you’ll read yet?
