Christmas Book Review

A Christmas Homecoming: A NovelA Christmas Homecoming: A Novel by Anne Perry

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I always look forward to these yearly little stories set at Christmas. This one concerns an acting troupe who are ensconced in a magnificent home in Whitby to hone a play written by the estate owners' daughter. A stranger appears at the door who has been stranded in the storm with his broken carriage. His stay livens up the troupe, but with tragic results.

I imagined that I was one of them, a guest in this huge home with the blizzard raging outside, but safe within.

Anne Perry writes about England in the 1800's. Always well written and delightful to read.

  1. England in the 1800's has an appeal to me, too, Linda. This sounds like a good book! I'd been working my way through Jane Austen's "Emma" over the last couple of weeks but decided to put it aside for the time being. I've been watching "Downton Abbey" (PBS Masterpiece) online - it was recommended to me by another Anglophile! - and jotting notes to be used later in poetry.
