What I wouldn’t give to be given the opportunity to up and move to Tahiti. Turnball was given such a chance when her husband was relocated there for work. She discusses the realities of living on a beautiful, yet isolated island, as well as becoming acquainted with customs that are not your own. Turnball lets the reader in on some very personal moments in her life, whether it be her quest and ultimate struggle to have children or how alone she feels at times. She writes with such vivid imagery that from page one I felt as if I were joining her on her daily swim in the lagoon adjacent to her house. A lovely look into a couple of years in Sarah Turnball’s life. ~ Reviewed by Misha D'Andrea

I absolutely adore Lucy Knisley's artwork as well as her hysterical commentary. As her and her mother both face life changing milestones (graduating college, turning 50), they spend a month together sightseeing in Paris. "French Milk" is Lucy's travel journal of the trip. Funny, heartwarming and relatable. ~ Reviewed by Jess Elder

Fermor's fans will celebrate this last of his trilogy - after A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water - chronicling his famous walk through Europe in 1933-4. Beautiful writing brings you into an almost medieval Eastern Europe that vanished during WWII. Absolutely wondrous. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
