20 Oct BOOK REVIEW – To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
Ned Henry has gone back to the 1940s and is searching every jumble sale and all over Coventry for a Victorian atrocity called the Bishop’s Bird Stump. The Stump is part of a project by the eccentric Lady Schrapnell to restore Coventry Cathedral, which was destroyed in a WWII air raid.
Verity Kindle was also searching for the Bishop’s Bird Stump, but back in Victorian England. When she inadvertently brings back something from the past all sorts of complications ensue, that could change history!
Set some time in the not-too-distant future To Say Nothing of the Dog is the second in the Oxford Time Travel series by Connie Willis and is a wonderfully fun book. Join Ned and Verity as they search for the Stump and meet an interesting and varied cast of characters along the way. Princess Arjumand, a cat, and Cyril the Bulldog are two of my favorite characters. Princess Arjumand is the catalyst that almost destroys the space-time continuum!
