And suddenly, it’s April. Where did that time go? This Easter is very different to last year’s, with people everywhere at the shops and it’s even started to rain! Lucky I got out early and bought two books, with one received in the mail earlier in the week:
Emotional Female by Yumiko Kadota arrived (signed!) thanks to Penguin. This is Yumiko’s story of training and working to be a surgeon in a male-dominated field, where she was expected to be everything all the time. After long rosters and a lot of name calling, she quit to save herself and rebuild. (On a separate note, an excellent cover – medics all over will recognise the style).
A Patchwork Planet by Anne Tyler finds Barnaby on his own after the end of his marriage and being labelled a black sheep by his family. When Sophia enters his life, can all this change?
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles finds Count Rostov under house arrest in 1992 Moscow in an attic room of the Hotel Metropol. Stripped of luxury, his life just might be getting better…
