    Daughters of Eden focuses on the lives and fortunes of four very different young women at the outbreak of the Second World War. Marjorie, left at a boarding school by her emigrating mother; plain Poppy, pushed into marriage with a mean-spirited aristocrat; Kate, despised by her father, but determined to prove herself; and man-mad Lily, who turns out to be the bravest of them all. That all of them are chosen to work undercover for the espionage unit at Eden Park is a surprise, not least to them.

    AmyX says: "An amazing book everyone should read."
    "masterfully interwoven"
    Overall

    Those reviewers for whom this "fizzled" should probably stick to Dr. Seuss. This was very well written, and I was held by each individual's story and captivated by the weaving of the lives. I will look for other books by Ms. Bingham, as this was my first to enjoy.

    The grandson of a Scottish clan laird, Duncan MacTavish is shocked to learn that his other grandfather was an English marquis whose title and London estate he is now required to take on. Worse still, he is engaged to a stranger who has mocked him in public. But his bride-to-be, Ophelia, has been guiding a lovely and witty, if dreadfully inexperienced, country girl named Sabrina through the latter's all-important first coming-out season.

    Helene Hadfield says: "Don't Waste Your Credits on This One"
    ""raspberry sound""
    Overall

    Might be a fair book (smarmy comes to mind), but the American reader trying to sound Scottish and Yorkshire-ish fails miserably. The combination make it not among my favorites.

    This ambitious, electrifying work traces the harrowing journey of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, a beautifully illuminated Hebrew manuscript created in 15th-century Spain.

    When it falls to Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, to conserve this priceless work, the series of tiny artifacts she discovers in its ancient binding - an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair - only begin to unlock its deep mysteries.

    Yvette says: "Amazing, fabulous, wonderful!!!"
    "hated for it to end!"
    Overall

    So well written, and so well read. I kept wanting to delve more into each of the lives this Haggadah touched! One of the best books I've experienced in a very long time!
