Review byBarb Taub
Mary is a nursing sister at Lancashire prison camp for the housing and treatment of German POWs.

I am thrilled to welcome you to my stop on the Orenda Books blog tour for the latest novel by Paul Hardisty, which is sadly the last of the Claymore Straker series.

As an ex-English teacher who has taught Shakespeare’s version of Romeo and Juliet I am delighted to be part of the launch celebrations for a brand new retelling of the story, Juliet and Romeo, by David Hewson. Not only do I have my review of Juliet and Romeo today, but I am thrilled to have been able to ask David Hewson a little bit about the book.
