While I was home for the New Brunswick Day long weekend, I read Jo Walton’s alternative history Farthing. This is a classic English country house murder mystery, but set in an alternate England that, instead of pressing the war against Hitler, settled a truce instead. It was a compelling, addictive read. Saying I enjoyed it would not be the right words, but I fully intend to pick up the sequel, Ha’penny, at the earliest opportunity.
