Monday: Just in time for President’s Day, Jackie celebrates with the children’s book, George Washington’s Birthday by Margaret McNamara.

Thursday: Kate is surprised at how much she enjoyed H G Wells’s novel of an immortal in Folkestone, The Sea Lady.
Friday: Leena reviews Juliet Barker’s Conquest: The English Kingdom of France, 1417-1450.
