A Little Book Problem


Today’s literary castaway, stranded on a deserted beach with only five books and one luxury item to keep her company, is author, Lizzie Lamb. Let’s see what she has chosen from all the books even written as the ones she would like to be stuck with indefinitely, shall we?

Book One – Friday’s Child by Georgette Heyer


Hero Wantage is desperate to change her fate.

When the dashing Lord Sherry proposes out of the blue, Hero is overjoyed – she’ll escape a life as a governess and, once they wed, he can finally claim his inheritance.

    I really enjoyed reading about the books which would keep you company while stranded on a desert island (south sea is certainly a good idea – I join you there – except it would not be deserted anymore) The only writer I heard about is Jilly Cooper but all your choices seem very interesting. I am sure you will not get bored while sitting in your bamboo skirt shaded by palm leaves and drinking coconut milk on a lovely white sandy beach waiting for rescue. Reading your stories about the books and why you have chosen them is most entertaining and I simply love your way of using words and humour to its best.

    • Thank you Astrid. You would be the ideal company on a desert island 😋. I’ve almost forgotten what the sun feels like but would happily don a grass skirt. So glad you enjoyed reading the blog post. It’s humour that keeps us going, isn’t it?
