Interest in HF: I’ve always loved fiction and history, so historical fiction is my happy reading zone. I think the books that cemented hist fic as my favourite were Random Passage and Waiting for Time by Bernice Morgan. I have a special interest in: WWII, Ireland, England, Italy, Canada (especially Newfoundland and Labrador), women’s history/herstory and folklore.
Favourite HF book: Can’t pick one. Recently enjoyed The Good People by Hannah Kent.
Preferred HF: I have a special interest in WWII period, especially relating to women’s history, codebreaking work, Bletchley Park. I tend to most enjoy literary fiction rather than comercial or popular fiction, but read a range.

Forget-me-nots and books

I collect things with forget-me-not flower motifs. I love forget-me-nots - the flower and the sentiment and the way the symbolism gets used. Mostly I have vintage postcards, but some pottery and other things, too.

And, of course, I collect books.

It is somehow so beautiful that you collect forget-me-nots. It is very poetic.
