Books Read In The Past Week

Books read for the first time are marked with  a #

Books, (except Sunday books) are grouped by author, and not necessarily in the order read.


Sunday book(s)


"In A Great Tradition
Tribute to Dame Laurentia McLachlan,
Abbess of Stanbrook"
by The Benedictines of Stanbrook
( Rumer Godden wrote in "In This House of Brede": 

"All of the characters
in this book are imaginary, but many of the episodes
are based on fact; some are taken from the life and
sayings of Dame Laurentia McLachlan and Sister Mary
Ann McArdle of Stanbrook Abbey.")

I recognize some of the incidents.
