Once I had done reading epics, I went back to the Love-a-Book reading list. I really need to be set challenges to read; one way of doing this is to download random stuff on my Kindle, another is to actually get to the local library but the best way for me is online reading groups. I do hope you carry on with it, Cara.
Black Sea Twilight is a young love story first and an account of life in Romania in the last days of the East/West divide. It combines delicately handled romance and politics and brutality, twisted together with hope and resignation in equal measures. I found it compelling and extra-ordinary and can heartily recommend it.
Which is not a very good review – but I read it a while back now!
