The Tenth Gift

Book Readalong March 2021

Today it’s a bookish post as I introduce next month’s book readalong, one of my favourite #BringBackPaper activities!

If you’ve yet to join in with one of these readalongs, let me tell you a little more about it and tempt you to join us.

The book readalong is an easy activity to get involved with as it’s like an online book club. I will always share the book here, usually a week or so before the month that we will be reading it in, to give you time to get your copy.  Then the #BringBackPaper online book club is open to absolutely everyone, so do feel free to come and readalong with us. 

The book readalong is a great way to read something that you might not have picked up yourself, and I try to change up the genres from month to month to keep things interesting. 

I have chosen a new book for March for us. It caught my eye as I was book browsing (something I do all too often) as it was like nothing we have read together before and it’s not a usual read for me. I thought it would be good to try something different and the reviews look good, so let’s give it a go!

March Book Readalong

So onto March’s book to readalong with and it’s this, The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson

The Tenth Gift

A little about this month’s book read-along:

In an exclusive London restaurant, Julia Lovat is given a gift that will change her life. The antique book of Jacobean embroidery delights her, but when she looks more closely, she discovers within its faded pages the extraordinary diary of a young Cornish girl, calling to her from across the centuries.

On a Sunday morning in July 1625, Barbary pirates sail into a quiet Cornish bay and storm the church. Their loot: sixty men, women and children, bound for northern Morocco where they will be sold as slaves. Amongst them is Cat Tregenna, a talented young embroiderer. But as her diary reveals, Cat is anything but the compliant slave her captors were expecting…

The book readalong is really simple to join in with, you just need to get yourself a copy of the book and read it at some during March. Let us know that you’re joining in by dropping by the Facebook group to chat about it, or tweet or Instagram your book with the hashtags #BringBackPaper #BookReadalong. If you’re not on social media, then it matters not, you can join in and not tell the world what you’re up to!

    The Tenth Gift was a great read! It had English countryside (as a U.S. citizen, I enjoy all English countryside!!), it had a strong woman, love, PIRATES, and exotic places like Moracco. I am glad I gave it a try.

      I’m so pleased you enjoyed it! I’m around a third of the way through now and it’s just got to that point where I just want to keep on reading!
