I’m a huge fan of Fred Vargas’ work. And this book is no exception. The star, once more, is Commissaire Adamsberg.

And in each case an assailant has been found, always suffering from amnesia but also having a murder weapon in his possession. In each case the police decide that this individual is responsible and, there you go, case closed. Adamsberg is not so sure.

Juno is 16. And pregnant. At first she thinks she’ll have an abortion, but changes her mind, she’ll continue to be pregnant but she isn’t interested in being a Mommy. She’ll give the baby up for adoption. So she takes a look in the PennySaver, which I’m guessing is similar to our Buy & Sell, and finds a couple she

Remember 2 years ago? Although this was worst, because right up to the final whistle the hope was there. And let me tell you hope is a

Sheila pointed out that today is Laura Ingalls Wilder’s birthday. She was born on 7th Feb 1867. And reading Sheila’s post I remembered how much i loved those books as a child. Unlike Sheila I have no idea how old I was when I read them; I know that B#1 read them before me. The memory that stands out the
