Description

For frayed nerves in January we are offering some of our favourite soothing reads. 
 
Five of the most charming, comforting books we sell in the shop – from intelligent romantic comedies to an intense drama of the 1930s.
 
Cuddle up with a hot water bottle and a blanket and escape the January Blues.
 
Your Bag will feature:
The Grand Sophy – Georgette Heyer
For the pure pleasure of joining Regency heroine Sophia Stanton-Lacy, five foot nine in her stockings, in an unladylike gallop round Hyde Park on her horse Salamanca. A more effective cure for flu than any amount of paracetamol.
 
A Gentleman in Moscow – Amor Towles
The rare book that everyone here loves! A combination of a character – the Count – who is a delight to spend time with, and the delicious setting of grand hotel, make it a book that you genuinely want to start reading again the moment you turn the final page.
 
The Inn at Lake Devine – Elinor Lipman
All the ingredients of a perfect novel: sharp observation, a wonderful sense of humour, unforgettable characters and flawless dialogue. The only great sadness is it ending!
 
They Were Sisters – Dorothy Whipple
From a distance of over 70 years, Whipple’s characters, their marriages, their fortitude and their fallibilities are utterly recognizable and will help us gather ourselves for the year ahead.
 
I Capture the Castle – Dodie Smith
The ultimate comfort read.  Just in case you’re not already reading it at least once a year.
