Virgin Earth by Philippa Gregory.

It's a follow on from *Earthly Joys*it's about John Tradescant and John Tradescant the younger who were Charles 1st's gardners just before the civil war.

I'm enjoying it...just wish I had more time to read more than a chapter at a time ! x

Is that Borley in Essex/Suffolk, Robin?

The brave kids at school used to go there at night in the older kids cars because it was said to be haunted!

I was too scared to even think about it. Lol

I am more than half way through reading the 'Floating Brothel' - details about female convicts shipped to the new world in the late 1700s. Harsh times and punishments indeed!

Just finished ex-SAS Andy McNab's Seven Troop - it was OK but nothing special and I liked the five or six page chapters; also finished Gp. Capt. Peter Townsend's autobiography 'Time and chance'.

This was surpringly an enjoyable book - and in his time at the palace (7 years or so); he formed a friendship with George VI. The King and Queen Mum sounded really nice folks, the way he described them. I think he and Margaret would have been A-OK had they been left alone.

It's ironic that because he should have only been there for three months his wife and children rarely saw him at all later on, and likely this was the reason she filed for divorce, never seeing her husband! What would his life - with his first wife - have been like had he not been appointed to the palace, I wonder?

Like Muffy, Virgin Earth - just started it. Have to go for a glucose tolerance test at 8.45 tomorrow morning and was told to bring a book because I'll be there for 2 hours, so hope to read a lot more of it then. Might do my nails too and study my seed catalogues! (No, not my toenails lol!)

The mystery of Abbotsford. Christmas present from ebay. Its an old book. I like them old. Have modern books too, but quite a lot of old books. 1845 i think is the oldest.

I have loaded my Kindle up with dozens of old Science Fiction novels from the 1950s and 1960s. Mostly free from Gutenberg.com

Slowly working my way through them!
