Romantic Reads for February

Want a little romance in your life?  Take home  the UK Romance Novelists' Association's Romance Novel of the Year:  East of the Sun, by Julia Gregson.  The book tells the story of three young women who travel to India during the last days of the British Raj: Rose, about to marry a man she hardly knows, her bridesmaid Victoria, who is determined to find a husband, and their chaperone Viva, who longs to recapture the India of her childhood.  The head of the judging panel said the writing is "exceptionally good" and "really transports the reader to India at the time of the Raj  The three central characters are beautifully drawn - really sympathetic and engaging".  Gregson's novel triumphed over some stiff competition from Cecelia Ahern's Thanks for the Memories, as well as from the other nominees,  including Canadian author Susanna Kearsley's Sophia's Secret (my personal favourite, published in Canada under the title The Winter Sea), and Lesley Downer's The Last Concubine.  Library staff can help you find these and other books like them, so please ask us!
