I've made a start on Bring Larks and Heroes by Thomas Keneally, winner of the 1967 Miles Franklin Award.
I wondered if that was how forgiveness budded; not with the fanfare of epiphany, but with pain gathering its things, packing up, and slipping away unannounced in the middle of the night.

I just finished the series “Imdalind” which I really enjoyed, and now have started “ Trylle” the trilogy. I know I am too old to be reading young adult love stories, but I find them easy to read.

Anna Karenina. It's a good book, but don't believe the hype. Brandon Sanderson is much better than Tolstoy. He at least could make pages of Russian farming technique somewhat interesting.
"Brandon Sanderson is much better than Tolstoy" - that's an interesting proposition!
Basically, the question is if it holds up. He may have been revolutionary in his day, but nowadays is his message still relevant? Sanderson will stand the test of time.
