Book of the Month
The Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Armin
Could there be a better time to read this wonderful classic from 1922?
A discreet advertisement in The Times lures four very different women away from the dismal British weather to San Salvatore, a castle high above a bay on the sunny Italian Riviera. There, the Mediterranean spirit stirs the souls of Mrs Arbuthnot, Mrs Wilkins, Lady Caroline Dester and Mrs Fisher, and remarkable changes occur.

Indie Book of the Month
Here are the books which the Booksellers Association has picked as Indie Book of the Month for children and adults in April.
Pip William’s debut novel The Dictionary of Lost Words tells the story of Esme, whose father is helping gather words for the very first Oxford English Dictionary. Hidden beneath the table on which words are sorted, Esme begins to collect those words which have been misplaced, discarded, or neglected by the dictionary men, and soon realises that some words are considered more serious than others, with words related to women often going unrecorded. Against the backdrop of the women’s suffrage movement and the years before the Great War, Esme begins to collect words for another dictionary, containing these lost and ignored words.
Weirdo is the new title from acclaimed authors Zadie Smith and Nick Laird, and is the story of Maud, a guinea pig who wears a judo suit and is given as a gift for Kit’s birthday. Although Kit’s other pets have never met anyone like Maud before, with bravery, kindness and a bit of luck, she may learn that being yourself is the best thing you can be. Weirdo is published in hardback by Puffin on 15th April and is available for pre-order now.
