The Prodigal Daughter by Jeffrey Archer (Book 2)

Well, I loved Kane and Abel and I was absolutely excited to read Prodigal Daughter – the story of Florentina, Abel’s daughter. Oh boy, the disappointment! The entire story from book 1 was rehashed with additional details for about 10 chapters. All the dialogue, all the events, all the people. The only things that wereContinue reading “The Prodigal Daughter by Jeffrey Archer (Book 2)”

And Thereby Hangs a Tale * Jeffrey Archer Book Review

Having recently finished Honor Among Thieves * Jeffrey Archer, I decided to pick another one of Mr. Archer’s books and decided on a collection of short stories called “And thereby hangs a tale”. Some of the stories were real, some had actually happened to him and some were probably gathered from his time in BelmarshContinue reading “And Thereby Hangs a Tale * Jeffrey Archer Book Review”

Honor Among Thieves * Jeffrey Archer

A Prisoner of Birth * Jeffrey Archer

WOW. Just WOW. I loved this book! I think the time Jeffrey Archer spent in jail did wonders to his insight into the way the system works and what type of characters you can expect to see in a prison. He did writeCat o’nine tales which is a short collection of stories collected from prisonContinue reading “A Prisoner of Birth * Jeffrey Archer”
