When I saw the word "knitting" I ordered it on my kindle. It was not what I expected at all. I finished it last night. I did enjoy it (if that is the right word) and was deeply moved by it. Speaking from experience, as Mary said..."A Mother does not expect to lose her child". The book will remain in my mind for some time.

Think you'll enjoy Dan Waddell's The Blood Detective and Blood Atonement. Maybe you've read them? Murders investigated via genealogical research.

Thanks Liz,yes I'm looking forward to seeking out new authors, I generally go back to the tried and tested old faithfuls like Patricia Scanlan,Penny Vincenzi etc. I am just finishing the book I am reading now and then will get straight on to reading my new IBook. Can't wait for more recommendations from Delia forumites.
