    1. The Remarkable Journey of Miss Tranby Quirke is the kind of book you need a few days to think about before you understand if you truly like it or not. I guess that sounds a bit bizarre or indecisive, but the truth is Elizabeth Ridley's period piece, while extremely well-written, deeply touching and downright beautiful at times, leaves me a bit uneasy. Tranby and Lysette, surely two of the most unlikely women to ever fall in love with each other, are each so severely messed up emotionally (in the [...]

    2. First things first. I think it needs to be said that you really need to be on the right frame of mind to read this book.Personally, I find it highly enjoyable and entertaining but this is truly an unusual read from what Bold Strokes usually publishes. It's still very much to my liking but it might not be to anyone else coming into this story with preconceived expectations of finding a f/f historical fiction story written with the modern mindset of how absolutely normal a same sex relationship is [...]

    3. Tranby Quirke is an adventurous woman. Well, in her mind anyway. In reality, she is a very lonely woman who had lived her life avoiding any sort of real connection with others.

    4. The summary made me think this would be a take on The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Um yeah, no. Overly long, meandering story of a spinster who swears off love after I guess falling in love one afternoon (at 12 years old) with a girl she met and hung out with for roughly three hours and who subsequently died the next day. Yep, apparently that's enough to base a plot line on. If you like books where the protagonist whines her love interest's name over and over and over until you want to strangle [...]

    5. I had no idea what to expect from this book. Although the reviews gave me a bit of an insight, I thought.Still it was totally different and much better than I expected.It is a very nice read that should definitely be on L-book-lists.Do not let the title literally mislead you , as it did me.

    7. Gave it another go. Still find it somewhat disheartening and lacking to be honest. A short read though, so it was worth getting through it.
