Emma by Jane Austen

I had not read Emma by Jane Austen for many years, but some books, albeit only a few, are worth revisiting. Although the novel was first published in 1816 it is still reflective of people, their attitudes and actions. Emma is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance. The story takes …

Heathcliff by Sue Barnard

Sue Barnard is always a safe pair of hands as an editor and an author. So, when I noticed her book, Heathcliff in my TBR pile, I shuffled the pile to get to it faster. To be honest, writing a spin-off novel about a character that appears in a classic novel is not simple. In …
