This true story of a young man's remarkable and unique experiences as a spy for the allies during Germany's occupation of Italy makes for an amazing heart-breaking read.
This is the unique story of a couple's true tale of survival when they unexpectedly find themselves homeless and penniless in their fifties and decide to walk the 630 mile South West Coastal
An entertaining and delightful story about a quirky misfit - a perfect light-hearted read during these difficult times.

Light up your May with the Den's 3 Bright Ideas 


Some of us may be struggling to find a book with the right tone, pace and feel. We may not even feel in the mood for the storyline, the setting or the direction of even your favourite novels. It's been a battle for us too. So in the Den we have tried to mix May up with some light, easier reads around our Book Of The Moment, Beneath A Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan which we have chosen to commemorate the anniversary of VE Day (even if the celebrations are off!).


The Salt Path is a quirky memoir of a homeless couple taking on a 630 mile impulsive walk along the South West Coast Path, and The Cactus is a dry entertaining and delightful story about a quirky misfit - so hopefully a light-hearted read during these difficult times.

Our newsletter is free, so if you think someone would benefit from our monthly 3 hand-picked choices or our library of previous bright ideas please point them in the direction of our the website or follow us on Instagram or Fackbook. We have over 350 book clubbers in the Den so you don't have to start a conversation around the V word! Make it begin with your favourite reads!

And if you can't get your book delivered to your home try audible or download on your iPad or phone.  

We have plenty of choices on the horizon which we look forward to sharing with you. Until then, keep safe, keep a healthy mind and let's start a different conversation!
