I have just finished reading The Thread by Victoria Hyslop, which I enjoyed. It tells the story of Thessaloniki from World War 1 to the present day, it features on a couple of families and their stories of love, hardship, loyalty amid the turmoils of life. Its main character is Katerina, who is a great seamstress and of her life. I won't go into too much detail in case you want to read it yourself.
While I enjoyed the book I did not think it was as good as her first novel, The Island, which was a great read. This one was a bit slow at times I thought.
I have just joined a Book Club so my next book to read is Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey.
Have you read any good books recently?
