The Curse of the Narrows: The Halifax Explosion, 1917 (Laura M. MacDonald) I read this book specifically for research I am doing on a book I am writing of my own; but it was just so compelling and riddled with first hand accounts that it was enjoyable and disturbing and gripping in its own right.
At Drake's Command (David Wesley Hill) Review forthcoming shortly. This book came out of nowhere when the author contacted me about possibly reviewing. It is, without a doubt, the best piece of nautical fiction I have read since the Final Unfinished Voyage of Jack Aubrey. Honestly, I have waited for years for a great new nautical series...and this is it! More later....
It's been a great year! Full of Charles Dickens and my own personal explorations of Ireland and Scotland during a lovely UK trip!

Also, it saw the release of my favourite novel in exceptional film form......
Happy New Year and Happy Reading!
