'The Carer' in the Kindle format is a bargain at only 99p, so I snapped it up to read on my desktop PC, while I can carry on reading 'Good Samaritans' on my ipad. Hehe! (Not at the same time, of...

Re: Reading; Books, Kindle and Audio books.

Deborah Moggach's books are good, strong stories. I've read 'In the Dark' while holidaying on the Isle of Wight a few years back.

She wrote 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' too.
