Piers Torday recommends
Time Travelling with a Hamster (2015)
Ross Welford
"The gripping suspense truly makes time fly… the book’s heart and humour are hard to resist."
Mr Peacock's Possessions (2018)
Lydia Syson
"As compelling, mysterious and haunting as the troubled tropical paradise it portrays . . . Syson doesn't just write about the past, she transports us there. A tour de force."
