This Week in Books (October 21)

This Week In Books

Hosted by Lypsyy Lost & Found my Wednesday post gives you a taste of what I am reading this week. A similar meme is run by Taking on a World of Words

This week I am currently reading Nowhere Girl by Ruth Dugdall which will be published by Legend Press on 31 October 2015.

Nowhere Girl

Please see yesterday’s post for the synopsis and a taster

I have recently finished reading Rutherford Park by Elizabeth CookeRutherford Park
Blurb

Snow had fallen in the night, and now the great house, standing at the head of the valley, seemed like a five-hundred-year old ship sailing in a white ocean…
For the Cavendish family, Rutherford Park is much more than a place to call home. It is a way of life marked by rigid rules and lavish rewards, governed by unspoken desires…
Lady of the house Octavia Cavendish lives like a bird in a gilded cage. With her family’s fortune, her husband, William, has made significant additions to the estate, but he too feels bound—by the obligations of his title as well as his vows. Their son, Harry, is expected to follow in his footsteps, but the boy has dreams of his own, like pursuing the new adventure of aerial flight. Meanwhile, below stairs, a housemaid named Emily holds a secret that could undo the Cavendish name.
On Christmas Eve 1913, Octavia catches a glimpse of her husband in an intimate moment with his beautiful and scandalous distant cousin. She then spies the housemaid Emily out in the snow, walking toward the river, about to make her own secret known to the world. As the clouds of war gather on the horizon, an epic tale of longing and betrayal is about to unfold at Rutherford Park… Goodreads

My review will follow shortly

Next I plan on reading The Shadow Year by Hannah Richell

The Shadow Year

Blurb

1980. On a hot summer’s day five friends stumble upon an abandoned cottage hidden deep in the English countryside. Isolated and run-down, it offers a retreat, somewhere they can escape from the world. But as the seasons change, tensions begin to rise…
Three decades later, Lila arrives at the remote cottage. Bruised from a tragic accident and with her marriage in crisis, she finds renovating the tumbledown house gives her a renewed sense of purpose. But why did the cottage’s previous inhabitants leave their belongings behind? And why can’t she shake the feeling that someone is watching her? Amazon

  1. I really like the theme of past/present connections in your books for this week, Cleo! And it sounds as though there are some intriguing mysteries here, too. Very much looking forward to your review of the Dugdall when you’ve finished it.

  2. Some great looking choices there. I’m looking forward to adding Nowhere Girl to my list. I’m also looking forward to your review of Rutherford Park. From the description It does sound quite similar to the Cavendon book by Barbara Taylor Bradford (which I thought was quite poor) but interested to see what you thought of it before adding to WL!
