Dramas, Books & Tea | Dramas, Books & Tea – What more do you need?The living and the unliving mingle in her books like uneasy teens at a party, half recognizing each other, uncertain of what they have in common. The book in which she eventually found a reason to tarry weaves together two narratives in Arizona at the end of the s. In one, Nora Lark, a wife and mother, spends a day trying to restore order to her homestead, which is currently missing one husband, two sons and most of its water supply. It also seems to have lost its mind, since the remaining inhabitants insist that the house is being menaced by a terrifying beast. Nora believes that she alone is behaving rationally—and the dead daughter with whom she steadily converses agrees with her.

This is my second attempt to write my September wrap-up, as something weird happened and all my drafts disappeared, including my prepared October reviews — painful! So here goes some speedy typing…. Highlight of the month! A 5 star read. It focuses on one of the surplus women and her new life in Winchester, with churches, bell-ringing and embroidery filling her days. I really enjoyed this and read it with the Pigeonhole reading community. Enjoyable, dark tale.
Judith Kerr , the author and illustrator whose debut picture book The Tiger Who Came to Tea introduced generations of pre-school children to the joyful chaos of uncontrolled appetites, died at home yesterday at the age of 95 after a short illness, her publisher said on Thursday. Kerr, who dreamed up the tiger to amuse her two children, only started publishing in her 40s, and lived to see the Tiger reach its millionth sale as she turned As her death was announced, tributes poured in. She always seemed to see the good. Kerr was born in into the intelligentsia of interwar Berlin, where her father Alfred was a leading theatre critic and newspaper columnist and her mother Julia was a talented composer. As a Jew and an outspoken critic of the rising Nazi party, Alfred Kerr was a marked man, whose notoriety forced the family to leave Germany in , fleeing first to Switzerland and then France, before settling in England three years later.

This chapter also really struck a chord in me — how our two youths, having been bonded by their love and their trust in each other, to be so strong, so resilient, and so unyielding to everyone else outside their little circle. Despite the incessant questioning which our poor youths will have to suffer again, it is a relief to see someone getting closer to discovering the inconsistencies in the story which Chen Nian and Bei Ye presented because some part of me still hopes, that there would be someone out there, who would discover the entire truth about the case of the raincoat man. With the police clamping down so tightly on the both of them, this day was bound to come sooner or later; but knowing that it was bound to occur, and seeing it play out, is two entirely different things. My heart aches for my two poor, silly youths. Once again, thank you everyone for being patient and understanding!
