  1. Started before we set off: Ren and the Blue Hands )


  2. A novel for adults by Noel Streatfeild )


  3. Flashman )


  4. Wives and Daughters ) It's a long, steady read, and I was still deep in it when I returned home (and once I'd finished it, I was ready for more Mrs Gaskell, so that's not a bad thing).
