Books

Ginny is a volunteer who helps cover new books and is part of the Review Network. She is a voracious reader and so finds it difficult to recall titles of books she read a while ago. She likes fiction and non-fiction, and finds historical novels to be an enjoyable and "painless" way to learn history.

Her absolute favourite books are Jewels and Colour, by Victoria Finlay. Historical and other novels she has recently enjoyed are:

1. LaRose

"[The title is] the unlikely name for a young native American Indian"

2. Room

3. Raised from the Ground

"It's set in Portugal. The review copy had the best first line I've ever read, but the translator modified it in the next edition".

4. The Inconvenient Indian

5. Cold Mountain / Thirteen Moons (by the same author)
