What Lies Around Us by Andrew Crofts

Not only have I read some wonderful books published by Red Door, but I adored The Italian Gardener by Andrew Crofts, my review of which can be found here, so that when Emma Finnigan got in touch to ask if I’d like a copy of Andrew’s latest book, What Lies Around Us, I simply couldn’t […]

The Rapture by Claire McGlasson

Although I have been forcing myself not to accept new books for review as I can hardly fit into my home because of the vast number of volumes awaiting my attention, when Lauren got in touch from Faber and Faber to ask if I would like to read The Rapture by Claire McGlasson, all my […]
