The secret diaries of Miss Anne Lister

For those who are new to my blog, my friend Ken Mckellar is a regular contributor whose generosity is quite disarming. He was keen to share with me another review for a book he has read. I happen to have watched the related movie. It was a British movie released in 2010.  The story also inspired a series starring Suranne Jones: The Gentleman Jack. Enjoy the review and if you are a fan of this genre (Non Fiction. Biography. LGBT. History), you can purchase the book here.

A woman in Arabia: the writings of the queen of the desert By Gertrude Bell

I have been away for a few weeks. They were tough two weeks. I discovered that when I am not well I find no joy in writing. I thank God I have a friend like Ken. He contributed once again to my blog. He reviewed a book we both read and enjoyed. It is fitting that in the same month as International Women’s Day, we feature the writings of one of the most remarkable women of the 19 and 20 centuries. Into only 58 years, Gertrude Bell packed enough adventure and intrigue to last several lifetimes.
