Book of the Month

We are delighted to share our love of books with you, particularly ones that have a terrific story and and an excellent sense of location. We feel so privileged to enjoy a myriad of titles that come through our door, and one of the greatest pleasures is finding a great read that will appeal to the TF family as much as it does to us.

Each month we will be choosing a title that is relatively new on the shelves, perhaps one that hasn’t yet crossed your radar. This is such an exciting adventure for us and you can imagine that sometimes the choice will not be easy!

Travel the world with us through amazing fiction. Sit back and enjoy our choice of selected titles and of course, let us know what you think when you have had the chance to read the book!
