The Cairo House by Samia Serageldin

The Cairo House

By Samia Serageldin

Charming story about a woman who returns from the West to Egypt to rediscover her past. I got something of what it must feel like to be a cultural refugee. If you like your history unobtrusive, in the background, you'll pick up a lot about modern Egypt from this book.

The Gathering Night by Margaret Elphinstone

The Gathering Night

By Margaret Elphinstone

A wonderful evocation of life in prehistoric Scotland. You can feel the warmth of the fire and smell the wood burning as the children gather to hear their elders tell a story about a murder, and its consequences for the tribe. This is a book not to be missed

Title Deeds by Lisa Campbell

Title Deeds

By Lisa Campbell

Oh how the other half live! Lisa Campbell was the last child to be born at Cawdor Castle, family seat of the Campbells, and featured in Macbeth. Title Deeds tells the story of Lisa’s wonderful childhood and the changes that happened to their family when her father Hugh, moves the family to live in castle and becomes overwhelmed by the responsibilities of title, heritage and land. A painful story of the problems of wealth but written with humour. You really feel for the Campbell family and become caught up in the story of their lives.
