A Good Read.

I needed something light and gripping to read. It's awhile since I read a can't put down novel, This one, The Trespass by Barbara Ewing fits that bill. I got it at the second hand book sale at Easter.
 I was well aware of Barbara Ewing as an actress but not as a novelist.
 I am glad to find she has written 8 novels so I have 7 more to  track down and read.
 NZ born and educated she knows Wellington well and UK where she mostly works, 
This novel starts in London in 1849, during a Cholera epidemic. Her characters are very real as she is able put her acting ability into forming each of them.
 If you like historical novels I am recommending this read.

The little v neck button up cardigan I am knitting for Grandson is taking shape well. It's a good pattern to follow. ( Sublime -  4 ply - Sirdar Spinning Ltd. ). The colour blue here is not accurate. It is actually a darker shade.

I will have a look out for that book, I enjoy finding Nz authors...stumbled across Bulibasha by Witi Ihimaera at the Geelong library yesterday, it is now a movie so will look for that too.
