Books Read 2023

Books read 2023

  •  The Breadwinner Deborah Ellis January 2023 Life under the Taliban in Afghanistan in the early 2000s. Written for children but gives a picture of the difficulties facing families, particularly women and children. Reading this with the home education group book club.
  • The Hidden Pathway complied by GD Buss January 2023 The testimony of Mrs Elsie Dawson of the dealings of the Lord with her over many years, both before her marriage and then as a pastor's wife and mother of a large family. Mrs Dawson was the wife of the pastor at Union Chapel, Bethersden where my Grandmother was a member for many years. 
  • The Golden Fleece: a journey through Britain's knitted history by Esther Rutter. February 2023 A fascinating social history accompanied by stories of the writer's knitting projects. 
  • The Dragon's Tooth ND Wilson RA. March 2023 My son's book club reading. I don't really like fantasy but made it to the end of the book!
  • Mr Popper's Penguins Richard and Florence Atwater March 2023 A fun read aloud for younger children.
  • The Breadwinner Deborah Ellis March 2023 Read again as it was my book club choice for this term. Definitely worth reading with tweens particularly in view of the current situation in Afghanistan.
  • Pavanna's Journey Deborah Ellis April 2023 The sequel to The Breadwinner. This is darker than the Breadwinner although probably a sanitised view of reality. Worth reading but preread before giving to a tween and probably best read as a read aloud.
  • The Gospel according to Rome: Comparing Catholic Tradition and the Word of God James McCarthy. April 2023 An important book which goes through Roman Catholic doctrine and its basis and compares this with the Bible.
