I have listed them in random order (although if I did have to choose one it would be The Light Between Oceans. I have linked them to their Amazon pages for no other reason than laziness on my part and your ease of reference. I wish we could all buy our books from independent bookshops presided over by helpful and knowledgeable staff.
I have already read one novel - by a favourite author of mine - not published until next year but will certainly be featured here - when I am allowed to do so.
THE CLEANER OF CHARTRES: Salley Vickers
ELIJAH'S MERMAID by Essie Fox

(PS. I've just noticed that five out of the eight are historical novels. You won't be surprised.)
