What I read in June 2018 (Part 3)


I bought the next two books in this series at the writers’ conference I wrote about earlier. I had met both the authors previously. Joyce Worsfold kept making remarks about her book, including a story about the reaction of a lady, who had read it. I was intrigued and bought the last remaining copy from the sales table.

I really enjoyed A Fistful of Marigolds by Joyce Worsfold. It was not a typical book by a member of the Association of Christian Writers. The opening reminded me of books by Tom Sharpe, although I suspect the author would prefer it to be compared with a fictional version of Gervase Phinn’s books. There were many issues among the schoolchildren in the story, which had many twists and turns and a satisfactory conclusion. (Joyce commented that she wasn’t sure whether the flowers on the cover were marigolds. I wonder whether they are chrysanthemums, similar to the ones I had as my wedding flowers. They could be pot marigolds.)

Clearing the Loft

Clearing the Loft

Clearing the Loft by John Wakeman is a booklet of poems and prose. I really enjoyed it. The author had added notes about each of the poems he included. Reading other people’s collections of poems, however interesting, does not bring my own poetry project much nearer to publication!
