Book Twentythree: The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets, Eva Rice

About 30 pages from finishing this book this morning, I had an irresistible craving for fresh scones, so Chris and I assessed the pantry and discovered with delight that we had all the makings for cherry almond scones on hand. About 45 minutes later, after some mixing and baking and a quick run to the corner store for soy milk, we had hot scones with butter and jam, along with a fresh pot of tea and soymilk. Yum! A perfect accompaniment to this sweet little British story that takes place in the mid 50s. The characters were fascinating and the descriptions of houses and stores and clothes and post-war London and tea time snacks were vivid and beautiful and, even though the dialogue at times wasn't the best, I was swept along with the story to the very end.

This is on my list of books to read when I finally stop blogging and start reading books again...someday.
