I had a tough time narrowing down my #PersephoneReadathon TBR, but I’m happy with my final picks and ready to read!
My TBR includes:
Lady Rose and Mrs. Memmary by Ruby Ferguson (1937)
This sounds like a lovely, fairy-tale-esque story with a sweet romance and a tiny twist at the end. I think it will also offer some pointed commentary on class and the restricted roles of women. I’m looking forward to escaping to a nineteenth-century Scottish estate for a bit!
Little Boy Lost by Marghanita Laski (1949)
Little Boy Lost revolves around a father’s desperate search for his missing son in post-WWII France. I’m expecting this to be incredibly gripping and possibly heartbreaking. It sounds like it may be hard to put down as well.
Guard Your Daughters by Diana Tutton (1953)
This is Persephone Books #125, and therefore the latest book to be published. I’ve been dying to read Guard Your Daughters since I first heard it compared to I Capture the Castle (only darker). I was given a copy for Christmas and knew I wanted to save it for the readathon.
I’ll also be dipping in and out of the short stories in The Persephone Book of Short Stories. I started this last weekend and am really enjoying it so far.
I ‘m so excited to see what you all choose to read over the next 11 days! I am a bit worried for the state of my Persephone wish list though…
