A Harp in Lowndes Square by Rachel Ferguson

originally published in 1936

This story tells of Vere and James, twins gifted with ‘the sight,’ which allows them to see and even experience scenes from the past (including one, at Hampton Court, involving royalty).

The twins are already aware of their mother’s troubled relationship with her own mother, the formidable Lady Vallant, but the discovery of an Aunt Myra, who died young and of whom their mother has never spoken, leads them to uncover the family’s tragic past.

Rachel Ethelreda Ferguson (1892-1957) was born in Hampton Wick. She published twelve novels. Others include A Footman for the Peacock (1940) and Evenfield (1942).

The Hero of Saint Roger
by Jerrard Tickell

Nestled in the warmth of the Caribbean, the island of Saint Roger is in many ways idyllic and consequently a popular destination for tourists…
Until one day, disaster strikes. With their home all but destroyed, the islanders must re-build their prosperity, but just a few years after the end of the Second World War, that is more easily said than done.
Ingenuity and leadership is called for. And an ingenious plan is duly hatched.
A plan that is both ingenious and perhaps, morally questionable. As the Prefect of Saint Roger heads to France to bring the plan to fruition, he makes sure that the local priest has been kept in the dark…

Jerrard Tickell's books, a number of which have been made into successful movies, include Moon Squadron, Island Rescue and Hussar Honeymoon.

The Sand Pebbles (RosettaBooks into Film) ~ free!

Summary
This book was made into a movie in 1966 and starred Steve McQueen.

Spoiler:
As a spirit of nationalism inspired by Chiang Kai-shek's leadership begins to sweep through China, the river gunship San Pablo is ordered to patrol the region and to protect U.S. citizens. The crew of the ship is soon drawn into an international conflict when the Chinese Nationalists begin trying to expel the "foreign devils" from their shores. The conflict not only serves to illustrate the divide between east and west but also causes a rift between the members of the crew.

The protagonist of McKenna's novel, Jack Holman, is a machinist aboard the San Pablo who has joined the navy in order to avoid jail time. Because he is so fiercely independent, Jake remains a relative loner while onboard the San Pablo and is uncomfortable with navy protocol and discipline. It is just this rebellious spirit that animates much of this novel.

McKenna's independent mind chafes against military hierarchy and also, ensures that he does not share his shipmates' disdain for the Chinese because he is not a "joiner". Instead, McKenna is fascinated with the culture and the people that surround him and develops emotional bonds that prove quite thorny when the circumstances become more tumultuous and more dire.

The perspective of Sand Pebbles is therefore both panoramic as well as personal. Like Lawrence of Arabia, the tension explored here is between the self as individual against the broader atria of social and historical forces against which we are all measured. The Sand Pebbles was made into a 1966 film of the same name starring Steve McQueen.

Amazon UK Today's BIG DEAL:

All the Poldark books are on offer for £0.99 each.

I highly recommend this series. Set in Cornwall from 1783 through to 1820, it follows the fortunes of the Poldark family, and their mining and other adventures.

There's a current TV series from the BBC. The first two series cover the first four books. The third series is due to start broadcasting next weekend.

The tv show was a little before my time, but I remember it in syndication. Trivia question: Who remembers what the "G" in Maynard G. Krebs stood for?

All Creatures Great and Small - James Herriot

99p Daily Deal at Amazon UK. This is the omnibus of the first two books in the series - If Only They Could Talk and It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet. I really can't recommend them highly enough - terrific series of books.

Quote:
The inspiration for the BBC series of the same name

Fresh out of Glasgow Veterinary College, to the young James Herriot 1930s Yorkshire seems to offers an idyllic pocket of rural life in a rapidly changing world. But from his erratic new colleagues, brothers Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, to incomprehensible farmers, herds of semi-feral cattle, a pig called Nugent and an overweight Pekingese called Tricki Woo, James find he is on a learning curve as steep as the hills around him. And when he meets Helen, the beautiful daughter of a local farmer, all the training and experience in the world can’t help him…
