Hi, Saskia. Yes, I've read all those Delderfield sagas twice except for the Swann trilogy which I've only read once. I'm now on the final few pages of Sorrell and Son and have thoroughly enjoyed its portraits of 1920s people and their times. I ordered the Swann books on my Kindle the other day so I might start them while I'm in France over the Christmas period. And another author I got hooked on is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I started reading his Sherlock Holmes stories out of curiosity and got thoroughly hooked. I read them all and then moved onto his other works. Doyle was a born storyteller and I read his Lost World and the other Professor Challenger books. Then I got into his stories about Brigadier Gerard, an officer in Napoleon's army. I ordered The complete Arthur Conan Doyle works on Kindle and dip into them regularly. Funnily enough my wife, who I had thought wouldn't have been much interested in Sherlock Holmes, started reading them and went straight through the entire Baker Street adventures. We then got hooked on watching the TV series with Jeremy Brett's excellent portrayal of Holmes. My goodness, where does the time go?
