 Unique.
 

May 6 -13

{
completed May 13= 353 pgs }
A heart’s rebellion and the unexpected outcomes for one young country lady experiencing her first season in London’s high society.  A journey of self discovery, but at what price …?






May 13-18 {completed}
Julia Elliston, our teenage protagonist, puts her spin on the circumstances surrounding her flight to her unknown birth father to avoid the entrapment she experienced in Born of Persuasion, book 1 of the Price of Privilege series. Oh for the eyes of maturity to unravel the tangled web the errors of her juvenile misunderstandings create in this episode…



May 19-20

A word artisan of wit and wisdom, Ms Ruchti’s light touch in developing thoughtful responses to heavy topics makes reading pure pleasure. 
The mysterious death of our protagonist’s charge add complexities to Becca’s future.
Ambiguities of belonging are most pleasingly resolved for our two MCs




May 21-23
{completed May 23 =380 pgs}
Contemporary story revealing poignancy of past regrets and the miracles of restoration that result from one eleven year old girl’s letter of compassion for her neighbour. One perfect spring pastime.






May 30- 31
{book=320 pages 
audio 
is 26 chapters}
Love the story. Contemporary life influenced by an intriguing past.Imaginary bookish situations form a delightful storyline…
The audiobook, due to release June 2nd, I found disappointing due to narrator’s characterizations and voice incongruity with youthful main character.  Sample it for yourself at downpour.com to form your own opinion….  
But don’t miss the goodness of
 Goodnight June!
