Red Pottage

by Mary Cholmondeley

Mary Cholmondeley is a very original writer. Hertheme is love, and how we grow and change. The loves of two women are followed, two very close but entirely different personalities, the men that love them, within which framework she contrasts a narrow minded man and his wife and how lack of love and perception leads only to destruction. I was fascinated throughout, and found some of the descriptive passages very moving.
A little known but brilliant writer.

The Danvers Jewels, and Sir Charles Danvers

by Mary Cholmondeley

Two separate books in very different styles. The first reads as a first novel written in the family for their own entertainment. It is lightly amusing. The second is a complete change of tone and expression, though dealing with some of the main characters met in the first book, the sophistication and depth in the writing is completely new.
I enjoyed it immensely, and can't help imagining a young Georgette Heyer, sitting at home reading it. It does not have the sparkle of her books but it reads like an influence, and perhaps in the depths of feeling observed it is more satisfying. I hope others will enjoy as much as I have.

Phantasia

by M.U. Riyadad

I tried to get into it but found myself drifting away. Two stars for the interesting concepts in the first chapter and the smooth blending of fantasy and sci-fi elements. Not a terrible book--- just not good.
