    Mark is my niece's husband. He has published several books about 20th century music but this is his first novel. it's out at the end of the month I believe. I'm ordering it from my local bookshop with the hope she might order a spare to go on the shelves.

    Diana Gabaldon series (it's been dramatized but I only watched the 1st series as the books were far superior.
    In the UK, number 1 book can go under 2 names" Crossstitch " or "Outlander".
    They are known worldwide as the Outlander series.
    This is the one book I would save if my house is on fire.
    It's a genre mix of time- travel/historical/suspense you are better off knowing nothing about the story when you start reading. It's 5 stars plus.
