Since starting with Jane Austen in 2017, we’ve looked at selections of books by different authors, working our way forwards in time. We’ve covered the Brontes, Thomas Hardy, and Daphne Du Maurier. Then we switched to themes and mixed up the authors as we headed into the 20th century: so far we have covered books with a strong sense of 'Context and Setting’, and 'Love and War'.
