    1. This extraordinary trio of stories by Jess Wells is well titled, because each tale speaks of the slender tether that ties each of us to our sense of what is normal in our lives – our wellbeing, our livelihood, our happiness and safety.

    4. I won this book in a giveaway, and the author was kind enough to autograph my copy! Thank you, Ms Wells!I have to say, Christine de Pizan is one of my favourite historical subjects -- a woman who was able to support her family in the 14th and 15th centuries, and become well reknowned on many subjects, most especially the education of young women (a topic close to my own heart). Wells brings us back to the time Pizan lived, and sets the stage in a very interesting way, linking the stories to the [...]
