I’ve done a fair bit of soul searching, plenty of reading and working on self improvement. Thich Nhat Hanh is truly a peace guru. This is a very easy and digestible read and reaching deep to find our own inner Buddha, practising loving kindness. “Ending violence in yourself, your family, your community and the world.” […]

This novel is truly a “jewel box of a novel”. The chapters are intersperse between the two main characters Abel who remembers nothing of his past and is invincible with no knife or cuts that can hurt him as the skin instantly heels itself. And then there is Eve, the furry lion faced woman – […]

I was hooked on her other novel In the Company of The Courtesan set in the 14th century Italy with its plot unfolding mainly in Venezia, a place close to my heart having lived in the Veneto. However, I am sad to report that Sacred Heart was so slow and was missing a denouement, ending abruptly […]

If I were to judge a book by its cover, I wouldn’t have picked it up. However,, the title and synopsis was interesting. This suspense novel is peppered with rich historical facts of 16th century Italy, in the same genre as Donna Tartt’s novels peppered with exciting historical recreation of that era like a Ken […]

I forgot how much I missed fiction and how much fiction I was reading a decade ago before work took priorities, but it’s been really good picking up fiction books at the library again. You never really know what you’re going to end up with. I thought The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani would fall into […]

Such a poignant great read, I finished it in a couple of hours. I have been a JW fan for years and have in fact read all of her books. The first being Oranges are not the only fruits, that I related to at so many levels as an angry adolescent in my late teens… […]

married to a chef

Many people I know make marriage sound like a walk in the park, which of course most know isn’t the reality. However, with social media, you can be who you want to be or create the life online that you’d like, but that isn’t a reality. Recently, an Australian model Essena O’neill decided to flip that all […]
