Sue Gee

Tuesday, 31 January 2017


Do you know Sue Gee's work? You may not, she doesn't seem to be very widely known but she is certainly worth getting to know. Mary's post  prompted me to read Trio and I am so glad I did. It's an exquisite novel of a grief healed by friendship and music. The sense of time and place is deftly drawn and the narrative quietly compelling.

After Trio I read Reading In Bed and The Hours of the Night both of which I found just as enjoyable and rewarding. I'm reading Thin Air at the moment and have The Mysteries of Glass and Coming Home waiting in the wings. Earth and Heaven and Last Fling (short stories) are on their way to me in one of Amazon's white vans and I shall undoubtedly be ordering everything else this marvellous writer has written.

Do have a look at Cornflower's posts on Sue Gee's work.

  1. I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I did, Sue. You're ahead of me now! I must read the others.

  2. Thank you for the recommendation. I've just had an email from my book group to say that our chosen book for next month is unavailable at the library and to choose another. I've suggested this one. I've downloaded it anyway as it sounds just up my street.

  3. I shall have to try these. You once enthused over Elly Griffiths' books and I raced through the set.

      I've read it, I won a proof copy on her Facebook page. It's great but I can't wait for the next one because it had a very tantalising ending.

  6. Sue, thank you for reminding me of Sue Gee's name. I don't believe my library has her books, but perhaps I can convince them to purchase at least one. Which would you recommend.

    Follow up department: I bought a quarter pound of Bacon on Saturday, Some of it contributed to Sunday morning breakfast; some of it will become part of a split pea soup, probably later today. xo

  7. My library has two of her books. Yay. Thanks for much for the recommendation, Sue. These look very much like my type of book.

  8. Thanks for this recommendation - just ordered The Hours of the Night. I'm normally never without a book, but recently I've had to abandon several as they just didn't 'grab' me. Looking forward to this author - thanks again!

  9. I loved The Mysteries of Glass - especially the description of landscape. A perfect book for winter.

  10. Having just read the two blog posts with such compelling recommendations, as well as yours, I've reserved a couple from the library....looking forward to those very much, thank you. Yesterday, the van brought me the latest Ann Cleeves, Cold Earth, for which there's been quite a wait.

  11. I've followed your blog on and off for years (and now your instagram account) -- and am *delighted* you're doing it again ... as much as anything for your book recommendations. I can't think there's anyone in cybersphere other than you whose choices inevitably concur with my tastes. And this is someone who normally only reads detective fiction or Scandicrime! What I've really enjoyed discovering (courtesy of you!) are books like Alison Uttley's Country Child or the Phil Rickman series. I now look forward to reading Trio! Thanks very much from southern Ontario in Canada :o)
