Lesley

What a lovely passage. I've never read Mrs. Miniver, but I'm going to request a copy today!

I'm currently reading two large novels: A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry (a re-read for book group) and Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher. The combined page count is near 1500, but I don't want either to end! This is going to be my year to read all the big books on my shelves.

Happy Friday!

Cornflower

Hi Les, glad that Mrs. M appeals.
I have A Fine Balance on my shelves (unread), but I think I have read Coming Home, and you certainly get your money's worth with Rosamunde Pilcher!
Wishing you a very good reading year!

Jane from Dorset

Just embarked on Babel so hoping for good things.

Mystica

Im just about to start A House that is our own. Read about it here.

Cornflower

Jane, for me Babel got off to a good start, but then went rather downhill!
Mystica, I hope you will love A House that is Our Own.

Anne

I have just finished Shrines of Gaiety by Kate Atkinson. Slightly quirky story written in a dry style. It is based on a real person who owned nightclubs in London. I’m not sure what I thought of the ending.

Cornflower

Thanks, Anne; I'm interested to hear your thoughts as I have that on my list to buy, being an Atkinson fan.

Nan

I SO love Mrs Miniver. A perfect book. And like Mystica above, I am reading A House that is Our Own! That amazes me.

Cornflower

Great minds ... (and great books!)

Margaret Powling

That is my favourite passage from Mrs Miniver, an all-time favourite!

Cornflower

It's super, isn't it?
