    One Stolen Kiss by Anna Faversham is FREE until 24th December A collection of five short stories: Deep in the World of the Dead – Former Army soldier, Ben, tries to settle into civilian life and moves to a new town to audition as a Big Band trumpet player. But when his housing arrangements fall through, he learns how easy it is to become homeless through no fault of his own. Dark clouds sometimes have a silver lining and none shine brighter than those with romance attached. Judge Not – You know what they say about assumptions. A holidaymaker in Italy makes the mistake of misjudging and is humbled when, at last, she discovers the truth. Love comes in different guises. Angela – Angels come in all shapes and sizes, and some of us have entertained them unaware. As the poet says, “God moves in a mysterious way”. A Wonderful World – The loss of a loved one can lead to loneliness, but new doors stand open. One Stolen Kiss – Set in 1814 England, this is a prelude to Anna Faversham's Dark Moon Trilogy. Daniel, a key figure in the smuggling community, becomes aware of a young girl who will change his life. ebook available at Amazon through this international link http://authl.it/B07GLQ1B
  6. Wanderer returns!

    Welcome back! I'm not very good at keeping in touch either!
  7. Thomas Hardy

    I've read Jude the Obscure - or perhaps I should say I started to read it and then gave up. It was a long time ago so I can't remember why I didn't finish. I liked The Mayor of Casterbridge. But he's not a happy chappy our Mr Hardy, is he? Perhaps I should read Under the Greenwood Tree as you say it is jolly. I think it was good for me to feel so deeply how his characters had to live. They were probably true to the times he lived in.
  8. Thomas Hardy

    Yes, I like Thomas Hardy. When I read Tess of the d'Urbevilles I was glued to it but when I got to the end I literally threw the book across the room (I was a teenager!). I could not believe anyone could end a book like that and I was very upset. He sure knows how to hurt.
  9. Hi Hayley - I don't visit The Book Club forum very often but a member has updated me and said that you have saved this valuable club. I'd just like to say thank you and I think it is good (if regrettable) that there are adverts on show now. I'm assuming that the more clicks on these adverts, the more The Book Club is supported. So I'll go and click on something and take a look at what the advertiser has to offer.

      Thank you Anna, that was a really nice message to get. I can't say my motives were completely unselfish - I would have been very sad to lose the forum and I'm really grateful to all the people who stuck around (you included!) and who really make the forum what it is. The ads are regrettable (especially when they start popping up in weird places instead of where they're meant to be!) but they are really helping. Thank you for wanting to help support the forum. You are right about how the ads work but I can't really comment more than that because of the AdSense rules.

      Do you know we have a patreon now? https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum . I can't take any credit for the page, I had a lot of help setting it up. But if you wanted to use that to support instead, you get entered into a seasonal prize draw :) (I can't wait to announce the Autumn one, I found such a good prize - if I do say so myself :D)

  10. As an author, I'd appreciate the review being for the whole collection with perhaps a mention of some or all of the stories. It's feedback for authors - what do readers like? If one story gets more mentions than another it's a pointer for authors. As a reader, I see your dilemma. I might choose a collection of short stories because I never have time to get stuck into a full length book. However, I think I'd wait until I'd read all of them - or most!
  11. Hello Fellow Readers!

    Welcome to this happy and friendly forum.
  12. New name, new me.

    Welcome back, Quinn. I hope you will continue to improve slowly but surely until you can be your old self again and enjoy reading once again.

    Ooh... that's a good one.
  14. Very Pleased to Have Found You All

    Welcome. It's been sleeting here in the south of England and I've been watching Scotland in the snow on TV. Just the right sort of night to curl up with a good book. I love audio books too and I'm listening to The House on the Strand by Daphne du Maurier at the moment. I'm sure you'll like it here.
  15. What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

    I watched the last ever episode of Inspector George Gently yesterday (or was it the day before?!). I shall miss it.
