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.
