Summer is finally here and that means I have time to plunge into the long-awaited World Without End.
I have had this on my shelf for years but needed a nice empty summer to feel like I could get stuck into it.
Need to garden... but a little read beforehand won't hurt. Just for 5 minutes ☺

Master storyteller, Ken Follett, takes us from the Scottish Highlands to London and onto colonial America with a powerful story of love, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Mack McAsh and Lizzie Hallim are searching for #APlaceCalledFreedom. With well-developed characters and a plot with twists and turns, I found the book unputdownable. Looking forward to my next #KenFollett book. I recommend this one to those who love historical adventure.
