HRH The Duchess of Cornwall releases summer reading list

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has released a summer reading list to provide inspiration to those looking for their next read over the summer period.

Her Royal Highness’s introduction is as follows:

“I am delighted to share a few more of my favourite books. At present, it might be ambitious to describe them as ‘beach reads’, but I very much hope they provide a welcome bit of escapism.”

The Woman In White – Wilkie Collins

A menacing and mysterious tale spun by this great Victorian writer with a penchant for drama.

Girl – Edna O’Brien

This brilliant Irish novelist lays bare the trauma of Nigeria’s abducted schoolgirls in this harrowing novel.

Roy Grace series – Peter James

If you have never read Peter James’ crime thriller series about the Sussex detective, Roy Grace, I would highly recommend you give it a try!

The Queen’s Necklace – Alexandre Dumas

A thrilling mystery about a missing diamond necklace. An epic tale of love and hatred, betrayal and courage, set at the court of Louis XVI.

The Island – Victoria Hislop

An evocatively told story of four generations rent by war, illicit love, violence and leprosy, from the thirties, through the war, to the present day.
