Books to be swept away with this summer…
There are SO MANY great books around at the moment and so I’d like to share a few that I think are particularly exciting. I’m not going to plop them all together in one post but give each the opportunity to shine in it’s own right…
Hold on to your hats… here are my summer 2019 recommendations.
The Seventh Train by Jackie Carreira
Here’s the synopsis:
What if you can’t stand where you are because there s nothing there? What if you don t want to end up anywhere else in case that s empty too? When life has lost its road map, sometimes the only way to get back on track is to get back on the rails.
The Seventh Train is a ride – a road movie on the railways. It s a journey that Elizabeth invented; the only original thought she has ever had in her previously uneventful life. Unbeknown to her, she is not travelling alone. If only she d pretended that the spare seat was taken.
With a wonderfully eclectic cast of characters, The Seventh Train takes its passengers on a journey from the tragic to the strange, arriving finally at hope. By turns heart-breaking, thought-provoking and hilarious, this tale is a life-affirming exploration of the human spirit via the British railway timetable!
I absolutely loved this when I read it earlier this year. I reviewed it as part of the blog tour and you can read my review here. It’s one of those wonderful novels that stays with you long after you finish reading.
The Seventh Train has been published in paperback by Matador and is also available Kindle. Visit the publishers website here for more information on where you can buy this title (also your local indie will be able to get hold of it too if they don’t already have a copy.).
