    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I tried, I really tried. I even restarted it a couple of times, but this book was not funny, it was not entertaining, and it was not intriguing. Sorry Ms. Rowling, I know you can do much better, but this one is a stinker.


    What could J. K. Rowling have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The characters here were just not interesting enough to care about


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There wasn't a favorite scene, they were all boring


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    sorry, but no

    The Black Death showed no mercy when it took Rowan Graham’s beautiful, young wife. With his clan nearly decimated, his heart torn to shreds, he is left to raise his newborn daughter alone. Rowan tries to keep the promises he made to Kate on her deathbed, save for one: He is unable to give his heart to another. Lady Arline is forced into yet another arranged marriage - loveless and lonely. Behind Garrick Blackthorn's good looks lies a cruel, vindictive man. She wants nothing more than her marriage to end so that she might gain the freedom she has longed for.

    Would you listen to Rowan's Lady again? Why?

    I liked the story very much. The only downside to the audible version was I couldn't understand the narrator when he did Lily's voice-making it hard to imagine her as a

    believable chacter.




    What did you like best about this story?

    I like stories about highlanders, what else can I say!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Beatrice gets caught


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Betrayal, love, strenght
