The year’s favourite books: Pamela Freeman

Today I am very pleased to welcome Pamela Freeman to my blog, to introduce us to her favourite book for 2019.

My favourite book this year was one which left me in a sobbing mess.  I cried so hard that my husband came in from the next room and asked if I was okay. ‘It’s so saaaadddddd,’ I wailed.
Which book? Kelly Gardiner’s Goddess. As Kelly says on her website: Goddess is a novel based on the life of the remarkable Julie d’Aubigny, known as Mademoiselle de Maupin – swordswoman, opera singer, occasional nun and seventeenth century superstar.
Impeccably researched and brilliantly imagined, Goddess made me laugh a lot as well as cry (but seriously, I haven’t cried that hard since Black Beauty died). Highly recommended.
 
PS  I’ve also tucked away Kate Forsyth’s The Blue Rose as my Christmas reading treat!
