Prince of Darkness by Sharon Kay Penman

One of those authors whose back catalogue I've been working my way through. This is the second last of hers. Will be sad when it's over, I quite like they way she writes. Back here
I said I didn't enjoy her mystery fiction as much as her pure historical fiction. Later on I said I was enjoying them more. This one I am positively devouring!

An Open Swimmer by Tim Winton

Every now and then I get it into my head to read through the entire back catalogue of an author I really like. Currently on this list are Sharon Kay Penman, Val McDermid and now I have added Tim Winton to that list. I love Tim Winton's work. He is by far and away my favourite author fullstop. I find myself reading passages of his work again and again just to savour the way he writes. *sigh*

Oh, you'd be glad to also know, I have finally finished The Orchard.
