You know the drill.  If you would like one or all three of the books, leave a comment. I enjoyed all three of these very much.

1. D. E. Stevenson’s Katherine Wentworth.  I wrote here:

I love D. E. Stevenson, and I know she has many fans.  This charming book is narrated by Katherine Wentworth, a pragmatic, observant widow with a sense of humor. She is struggling to raise her twins and her teenage stepson alone since the death of Gerald, her archaeologist husband. The family lived happily in Oxford before; now they live in a small flat in her hometown, Edinbugh. She is very busy.

In this pair of complementary novels…, Colette presents to the reader an anecdotal collection of family portraits and childhood vignettes which pay homage to the lost paradise of youth.  Central to both these works is the figure of her mother, Sido.

3. Tom Holt’s Lucia Triumphant.  If you’re a fan of the Lucia books, you’ll enjoy Tom Holt’s sequel.  It is very funny!
