I got a text from my sister a few days ago recommending a new book. Kim and I both like generally the same genre. The book she told me about was “The Book of Fires” by Jane Borodale. Her text said:
You should read ‘The Book of Fires’ by Jane Borodale. Its about a girl that gets pregnant then runs away to london in 1752…
The pregnant part, and the running away to London part piqued my interest, and when I got off work, I went and checked it out. I started it and I’m in love with it. It is about a girl who gets pregnant and goes to London in search of a place away from her disgrace. What she finds is a home as an apprentice to a fireworks maker.
I’m about halfway through, and whenever I have a spare minute, I’m cracking the book to find out what happens to Agnes. I’m going to make myself some Spaghetti-O’s now and settle down to read.
