Author: Posie Graeme-Evans

Publisher: Atria Paperback (A division of Simon and Schuster)

ISBN-10: 978-0-7432-9442-3

In her newest book, The Dressmaker, author Posie Graeme-Evans has based her characters in time and place so convincingly that for those who do not have a thorough knowledge of England in the mid-1800s, it reads as historically accurate. She has captured the flavor of the city and the tone of a class-defined society so well that she has made the experience of reading the story one of complete immersion in a different era. It was a pleasurable excursion that kept me riveted to the page.


Author: Leslie Dunton-Downer

Publisher: Touchstone (A division of Simon and Schuster, Inc.)

ISBN: 978-1-4391-7665-8

As English is undeniably a complicated language, it is not surprising that unraveling the origins of some of its words requires a scholarly approach. Although The English Is Coming! is not an easy read, author Leslie Dunton-Downer has made the subject of linguistics more easily digested by the layman.


Author: Neil Cossar

Publisher: Omnibus Press, a Division of Music Sales Limited

ISBN: 978-1-84938-543-5

I would wager that 99% of those who pick up This Day in Music turn immediately to their own birthdays to see who was born on the same day. The other 1% are those who insist on reading any book—even when it is arranged in a day-by-day calendar format such as this—from beginning to end. Either approach works, as This Day in Music is fun and enlightening any way you slice it
