    When I first received this book, I was a little concerned as historical novels really are not my normal reading material, however, I decided to give it a go with an open mind, and I'm really glad I did.

    The story of Elizabeth 1, the virgin Queen, a Protestant Queen seen by the Catholics as a traitor and a heretic in a patriarchal society where men subjugate women. This woman, Queen by birth and not by choice, who is afraid of a Catholic uprising to remove her from the throne and in her place put Mary Queen of Scots, a Catholic Queen, constantly looking over her shoulder for would be assassins and never at ease.

    A review is supposed to be a balanced report of positives and negatives about a book, the problem is I'm struggling trying to find anything positive to say about this one.


    The story hinges around Chrissie, a young female medic who wants to succeed. Maddy, the newly married, junior officers wife. Maddy is an Oxford graduate who doesn't know a thing about army life and is so green around the gills that it's painful. Her life is turned upside down by a new baby suffering with colic and a husband who takes his sport and the army more seriously than his family. Finally we have Jenna, the blonde bimbo, white stiletto wearing and apparently, the archetypal soldiers wife, who only married her husband for the ... well it wasn't the quarter, but that's another story.

    A Cat, a Hat and a Piece of String
    by Joanne Harris is a wonderful collection of interlinked short stories. They link to each other as well as to her other published works. Sometimes going as far as being a sequel other times a simple nod and cameo appearances. These short stories cover a variety of themes rather than being a collection of thrillers or love shorts, which alongside the fact that each is about 10 pages in length, maintained my interest even on my most distracted of days. From little old ladies causing mischief to train station cafés and the strong lure of the internet and social networks, this book covers a little bit of just about everything and adds an unexpected twist.

    I should put some kind of spoiler alert here as to explain my feelings about this book I will most likely end up giving away key twists and possibly the ending.

    Yours is mine is written from the perspective of the different characters, mostly the story is told by Kate, a solicitor who is taking a long home based sabbatical following the very traumatic experience of nursing her father who recently passed away. Kate’s husband, a naval officer, is currently away on deployment when Kate receives an email out of the blue inviting her to switch lives for 3 months as part of a PhD experiment.
