And the winner is …


Thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last blog post about their favourite books. I have a copy of Hannah Kent’s The good people to give away – I felt completely immersed in her Irish world, set in the 1820s, where ordinary people carry their superstitions about the good people, the fairies, in the same way they carry their farm tools or milking pails – an everyday habit. I found myself hoping that the main characters would fulfil their dreams – so it meant another late dinner for my kids as I tried to sneak in some more pre-dinner reading. (It is holidays, so it’s ok if dinner is late!)

And so the winner is …. Wendy! Please email me your address details, Wendy, and I’ll post out your book.

I forgot to post last Friday – because we moved back home. It’s been a busy week of unpacking and hosting December birthday celebrations but it’s so lovely to be home. I have so many favourite spots already, I have a place for all my books and I’m just thrilled to have kitchen cupboards which close properly!

I have one last post for Friday, and then I’ll be taking a break for a few weeks over January. Let me know in the comments if you’ve read The good people – I need someone to discuss it with!


  1. Hi Karen- tried to email you without success (says mailbox full!!)
    Just give book to Terri at some stage.
    I’m thrilled to bits, thank you xx

    1. Congratulations, Wendy! Sorted out my inbox problem – sorry you had problems contacting me. I will send ‘The good people’ your way!

  2. Ooh, how exciting to be home! I’ll put this boom on my list for next year. I read Burial Rites but the inevitable beheading hampered my enjoyment! I was hoping for a twist which would save her but, of course, I knew it was not going to happen! Have a lovely Christmas, Karen xx
