    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.

    This book is about a young girl who was training to win Gold in the Olympics at skiing. She then had an accident on a ski lift that left her paralysed from the waist down. Whilst a tragic story, this book shows how something like this can be turned into something amazing, and touch other lives in a way you would not think possible.

    A rather late review, but, as they say, better late than never. However, never may have been better for this book!! I'm the kind of person who has to read a book to the end, no matter how bad, but this book was a real struggle.

    This book is about a young Englishman who inherits a large amount of money, so leave University in England in 1817 and travelled to Venezuela to fight for liberty. It follows his travels through America and Australia and back to the UK.

    This story begins in Italy in 1492, and follows the story of 5-year old Mura, daughter of a Spanish book seller, through the events of her life until adulthood.

    It is set against the backdrop of the Medici era.

    The front cover described this book as 'Welcome to MI5 for wizards' and generally that's the whole premise of it. A secret British government agency that has a staff with supernatural powers.

    Very entertaining and a fairly original premise. I did start to get a little confused by the number of characters and actually why some were even there ( the sister for one) and to be honest the book could have been 3/4 of the length it was as it had a plot that kind of went on and on but really didn't need to.
