It's National Book Lover's Day!

Sunday, August 9, 2020

It's National Book Lover's Day!  On Instagram, I teased my IG Friends about my favorite book by giving them a hint:

The novel is told in the first person point of view via the main character,  and we never know her first name.  That's your hint.

This is the author's embossed signature on the book's cover.

Here's the answer:

I love the suspense and the Cornwall setting of this novel.  I might need to reread it soon!

Please tell us your favorite book in Comments!

Until next time...

Happy reading!

  1. I have not read that book in years.
    I am just rereading all the Catherine Cookson books I have---they still touch me and I am passing them along to my SIL as I finish them. So far, I have re-read more than a dozen of them while we were camping. xo Diana
