Zennor in Darkness | Helen Dunmore
post image

I was delighted to be invited by @shawnmooney to talk about Helen Dunmore's debut Zennor in Darkness on his Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/@shawnthebookmaniac6275) this summer. The episode of Bite-Sized Book Chats that I appeared on dropped yesterday and you can watch that here: https://youtu.be/lDu_cUSDY44?si=8nfdoqxoXsrYkcaV. I start at about 7:22, but the whole episode is worth watching.

BarbaraBB Will definitely watch! 10mo
dabbe Lovely. Or as Audrey Hepburn would say in MY FAIR LADY, “Loverly.“ 🧡 10mo
shawnmooney I didn‘t see the notification for this until just now. Great! Looking forward to having you back on again! 10mo

This is my 7th book by Helen Dunmore, so I guess you could say I am a fan. Like everything she writes, this is a beautiful, albeit sad story that takes place during WW1 and concerns a young girl, Clare, her cousin, John William, and D.H. Lawrence. Not much happens, but it is totally immersive and evocative of a time and place.
Book 3 of #14books14weeks2023

shawnmooney I‘m intrigued! Do you know that I have a series on my BookTube channel called Bite-sized Book Chats, when I talk to readers from all over the world about a book they‘ve read recently and enjoyed. I‘d love to have you come on Zoom and chat with me for just 10 or 15 minutes about this novel. The playlist of all 60+ episodes is here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLU-61cZp1pQdBH5V0Zb9q-2ujl4PY8nhf. Let me know! :-) 12mo
TheLudicReader I would totally be down for that, @shawnmooney 12mo

Today Zennor in Cornwall. #VirtualTour

How has Thursday been? Did Deputy‘s Appraisal today, along with virtual meeting and paperwork day. Then did some monitoring of people‘s plans. Now to tuck into my reading #OutstandingOctober #Scarathlon2020 #Screamathon


DieAReader @Andrew65 Sounds like you had a very productive day! Enjoy your evening of reading & hopefully relaxing♥️📚 4y
Lynnsoprano Sounds like a busy day! Sitting with my book and my feet up, because all the walking we‘ve been doing has apparently given me a sore knee. Pretty sure it‘s muscular, so taking it easy for a few days, ice packs, etc. Hubby fusses every time I get out of my chair. He fixed lunch and is cooking dinner, so this may not be a bad thing 😂 4y

JacqMac That sounds busy. It‘s supposed to storm here all weekend, so I did errands today. Got groceries. Went to the bank. Picked up some salt for when the ice comes. Now I‘m doing laundry. Not a fun day, but we are prepared. 4y
kezzlou85 Been okay. Found out the break in at the school may be linked to a break in at a church. They think it was young teens who did both. Its awful. 4y
JacqMac @Lynnsoprano Enjoy being pampered. Sorry it had to hurt, but hubby sounds like a good one. 4y
Lynnsoprano @JacqMac Thanks! He‘s definitely a keeper. I have only myself to blame. I should have backed off when it started to bother me, but kept pushing on until today the knee went, “nope, not happening.” I got to the corner and turned around. Promised hubby that if it‘s not better in a week I will see the doctor. 4y
BookwormM Steady day at work eyes feeling a bit better again 4y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Other than a one hour Teams meeting going an extra 83 minutes (!!😫) my day is alright. I'm the boss today and the staff has left me alone because they know I won't cater to them. I'm stuck here about 2 more hours but I should be able to just chill out & read. 4y
CocoReads Not a terribly taxing day so far but now it‘s just me and a pharmacist. 2 hours to go. Readjusted my schedule for tomorrow because due to a snafu, there‘s no opening person so I‘ll be back at 6:30 am—the good news is, if it remains uneventful, I‘ll be able to leave at3. So I should be able to start my readathon early! 4y
JanuarieTimewalker13 I went to Staples today and purchased 500 book tabs to get my tabbing on. Figured that would get to this crowd. Lol otherwise, I purchased black cardstock and markers at Joann Fabrics for my creative journaling...I thought the markers were more like gel pens, but they‘re not. This is what happens when old people don‘t put their readers on in stores. I really needed a silver gelly roll pen🤷🏽‍♀️ my bad. (edited) 4y
TheSpineView It was a good day. I only worked a half day. Working short weeks was OK for a while bit I am getting worried that business is still very slow. Just keeping my fingers crossed that next year will be better. 🤞 4y
Velvetfur Zennor?! That sounds like a villain from one of the old Superman films! 😂 Looks like a beautiful place though 🙂 4y
Andrew65 @Velvetfur It does or even a planet! 4y
Velvetfur @Andrew65 Oh yeah, that's a good one! 😂 4y
