lesley,try this....TAKE SIX GIRLS by Laura Thompson.
It's the lives of the Mitford Sisters. Appealing and appauling in equal measure but absolutely fascinating.You really couldn't make it up. ENJOY.

Here's another good read for you.....MY YEAR OFF by ROBERT McCRUM. The author is a well known journalist who writes for a variety of publications. This is the story of what happened to him when he suffered a stroke in his 30's. He writes very well and the story is very heartwarming. Also an eye opener about what it's like to suffer a stroke. Don't be put off by the subject matter it's very endearing too.

'Heart of Darkness' (Joseph Conrad) which, as some of you may know, is the story upon which the film 'Apocalypse Now' is based.

Bradshaws Girl - I have read this book. I am a bit of a fanatic when it comes to this family. When I am having a bad day with my twins I used to think how difficult it must have been for the parents having these six girls!

momac - have you finished ready the book? I know they were spoiled and rich - but goodness how they could get in so much trouble and have such unsuitable relationships is beyond me....
