Busy with: The Real James Herriot: An Authorised Biography by Jim Wight (Jame's Herriot's son). Interesting.
I read it back in the summer, and was also caught up by the start, but I was continually annoyed by the MC's stupid decisions and was wholly underwhelmed by the plot which for me was bloated as well as implausible. However, I have to confess that I read through to the end, whereas nowadays I'm much more likely to drop a book unfinished, so as an author she certainly knows how to hook even a reluctant/sceptical reader!I just started reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. This is a story which drew me in from the beginning with a great premise and vivid scenery, though it seems to be settling more into a romance story. I'm sorry to read that it isn't very historically accurate, so I will try not to pay too much attention to the details or let that detract from an otherwise captivating story.
