I did add ...

... to my own personal library today, as well as producing the latest booklist. Today's treasure is Lime Street at Two, by Helen Forrester ... this is volume four of her autobiography; I've owned the first three volumes for many years, but hadn't been aware of this one until I saw it at work today.

Helen Forrester is my pettiness cure ... if I ever catch myself feeling that life is being mean to me, a few pages of her horrific life in Depression Liverpool slamdunk my perspective back into reality. I love her fiction as well ... gritty and real enough to touch; I highly recommend Liverpool Daisy as a "first Forrester" book.

P.S. to kat1392: tell the librarian she's a romance writer (the covers should fool her ***grin***)
