Books

Shelagh manages the production of our booknotes.

She enjoys novels that are credible and authentic - not necessarily "a happy read" but those with convincing characters "that leave you thinking about them long after the book is finished". Recent non-fiction reading tends to be biography with a literary or historical focus.

Shelagh's all-time top-ranking picks from the scheme include:

1. The Luminaries

"It's a stand-out book for me in the way it's constructed and with the cast of characters."

2. Coming Rain

3. Summer Lies
