Hi all. Still on the waiting list for the next Christmas book, however if has finally arrived at the library. Can't wait till it's my turn to read and the timing is actually quite good - maybe I'll have it over my Christmas days off! As to the weather... It has been unusually warm here this fall too. (Northwestern Ontario Canada) Normally we have snow and minus temperatures after Halloween but, until today, our weather has been wonderful. Cold at night (-7) and +1-5 during the day. (Love that type of weather.) Today, however, we are back to reality. Winds, snow pellets, the works. Oh well, knew it had to come. Looking forward to the next Pitt book as the title sounds great - African Adventure (I think.) Haven't seen a listing for the next Monk. If I don't get an opportunitymm - Merry Christmas (Happy Christmas to those across the pond) and Happy New Year to everyone on the list. Wishing you a wonderful 2007 - much Health and Happiness! (Personally wouldn't mind wealth too but, at this time of the year, should not be pushing that too hard!)

Just finished no4 of the WW1 series, best yet. Anne finally got her padre up in the air with good action sequences. Cover a bit misleading as it appears to show a wartime wedding, but thats not in the book Set in 1917 the next one should cover the final year Still cannot get details of the Christmas one yet, anyone seen the title? Weather really weird in South England, leaves have only just begun to fall, spring flowers (primroses) are in bloom and other summer flowers have bloomed again. Still picking tomatos todays temperature 14 C In case we lose the Message Board again, Happy Christmas to all! Derrick

Ah, to view the world as only black and white - how rightous thou art. Become a doctor or a lawyer who does pro bono work and then lecture me. (Sorry folks, having one of those "don't get in my face" days....)

We have had this discussion many times before and you are just as boring as the rest. People make mistakes. Anne has not only turned her life around she has used it for good. If you are really interested in Anne's life look up what she has done. If that all you have to say I just have to say, stop scratching, the cut has healed.

Don't confuse the film with what actually happened 50 years ago. She's a wonderful author now, we enjoy her books so please stay off our message board

Does it really not bother anyone else that this woman, at the age of 16, helped beat another human being to death? Her age had nothing to do with it. When you're 16, you know what you're doing.
I avoid driving again over animals who are dead on the road after being unwittingly hit by a car. I can't imagine knowingly killing a living, breathing person by hitting them repeatedly with a brick. And getting only five years.
And bouncing back and back-pedaling by saying, "Oh, I don't remember anything, and I was just a girl" (again, at 16, you know) and becoming a hugely rich author who raves about being able to take bubble baths. Where's Honora's bubble bath? She died on a dirt path in horrible pain. She was just trying to be a good mother.
I think "Anne Perry" is full of. I think her becoming religious (whoo, 40 whole years!) and pretending that she's someone else now is complete garbage. I think that just because you can write complex stories does not make you a good person. I think she's a dark soul.
All of her fans...don't they know, can't they picture this woman helping to pulverize a woman with a brick...even at the age of 16? It's sick! It's wrong! That someone could even do that makes me sick to my stomach.
Yet, she's a famous author now. Good for her.

I have just started "... at some disputed barricade, " the 4th in the WW1 series. Very gory, but fairly gripping

This is where living in the northern part of the new world has its' advantages. We use colour and color, night and nite, sidewalk and pavement. Almost like being bilingual in English! (Sorry, that is a little to weird.) Anyway, it will be interesting to see who gets the books first! I'll have to go on Anne's site to see what the next books are. And, very interesting that we can only post once per day. That does explain a lot. Happy reading everyone.

The tensioin is rising! Who will get them first. Simultaneous printings for both sides of the pond in a different language. Just think what Labour and labor; Colour and color lift and elevator (not likely to be in Pitt's time)nor I suppose Bonnet and hood or fender and bumper have cost publishers. Did the Americans have 'tweenies and sculleries in the 1880s. I must say that Sidewalks instead of pavements is more logical.

I spoke with the Webmaster about the message board and he assured me that everything has been fixed. We'll see! One thing that you may have already noticed is that you can only post one message per day. Perhaps that's why some of our messages are lost.
Anne's latest Christmas book, “A Christmas Secret”, came out November 1st so I pre-ordered it just in case. “A Christmas Secret” is set in 1890 England and features the Reverend Dominic Corde (Charlotte Pitt’s former brother-in-law from “The Cater Street Hangman” and “Brunswick Gardens”) and his new wife, Clarice. No other Pitt or Monk books are on the horizon as yet but there are a couple of the WWI books coming as well as a non-series book.
