Why I Want to Read this Book
I heard about this book through one of the Facebook groups I’m in hosted by Rachel Gilbey. (Find our more about her blog tours athttps://www.rachelsrandomresources.com
Rachel is a blogger and book reviewer from across the pond, and I really enjoy finding new books through her blog tours. I signed up for this tour quite some time ago, and life became very hectic in the meanwhile. My job has become even more busy and hectic now that all work must be done online. I’m learning about editing video, social media outreach, and doing a weekly mailer to both of the congregations that I serve. I’m working seven days a week and easily clocking seventy plus hours. In short, I have had very little time to read.
A delightful book like this is exactly my cup of tea. it sounds like just the mental vacation I’m looking for right now. I would love to escape to the town of Bath. I’ve read so much about it and have never been there.
I became interested in Bath after reading the novels of Jane Austen. Charles Nevin seems to have hit upon a promising idea: exploring the world of Bath through the use of fiction. I enjoy short stories, and I think it is very clever that each short story is followed by an afterword that separates the fact from the fiction. What a great way to teach history through the use of literature! I look forward to someday getting my hands on a copy of this book.
