Lorraine read and enjoyed 6 murder mysteries, Laurie listened to the Poldark series that was, as he described it, a kaleidoscope of the era around 1932. James Heriot was revisited and enjoyed.
An interesting read was If I Die Before I Wake by Emily Koch, quite a discussion on this topic. Barbara had read The Silk Road and obtained a copy of `The New Silk Road’ by Peter Francopan an enlightening look at history shaping the world.
Judith Bassett has had an article published in Quadrant `The Faithful Massacre of 1838’, previously published in the Journal of Australian Studies in 1989. Well done Judith.
Enjoyed was `My Mother a Serial Killer’. The mother was married in Wangaratta and met a younger man and murdered him and 2 others – gruesome.
`Mirka and Georges - Culinary Affair’, written by Lesley Harding, stories of the restaurant, recipes and art, as the reader described it, wicked but virtuous. Helen enjoyed Duchess, Lady Margaret Douglas a Scottish Lady who came from the house of Tudor and was the granddaughter of Henry the VII. Highly recommended was `The Land Before Avocado’ by Richard Glover – how Australia used to be.
So many and varied were the books this month I couldn’t list them all, these were just a taste of what U3A members are reading. Quite a few books were swapped for others to enjoy.
See you all on Tuesday 5th March.
