Thank you so much for the offer of the book PMS! I should be getting it soon from the library here but it's very nice of you to offer. I'm looking forward to the next Pitt book - I really like the titles. (Weird reason to want to read a book; but that sometimes is why I do.) I put titles intentionally too as there seems to be a few different ones for the next book. We'll have to see which one is finally decided on. Sort of off topic but I've always wondered how authors choose the title for their books. I enjoy the ones where I've read the title and looked at the book jacket and can't quite get the connection. Then I read the book and its, of course, .... Anyway thanks again for thinking of me. Have a great day!

Wendy, I have the Christmas book and its pretty good. I wish there was away to get your address. I would be happy to send it to you. Ofcourse you could keep it. Derrick, is there any way to get an address with out going public. I belong to a board that has a personal message board.

Thank you for the message but strangely enough my local library has no notice about it yet, nor is in our bookstore.Only 3 weeks to Chistmas too. The bookstore has however got the paperback of Southampton Row which Anne dedicated to me for the research so I've asked the family for it for Christmas. Over here is is listed at £6.99 which at the current rate on the dollar is $14. Anne asked me to do research on the exploitation of the native Rhodeisan copper miners some time ago so I expect Pitt in Africa is the outcome.

Derrick, did you read my posting from November 7th about the Anne's holiday book for this year? It is called a A Christmas Secret and involves Dommick Corde, Charlotte's former brother-in-law. Unfortunately, there are conflicting dates about Anne's next book, Africa Passage that involves Pitt. One date is for April 2007 and another is for 2008... who knows!

Hi all. Still on the waiting list for the next Christmas book, however if has finally arrived at the library. Can't wait till it's my turn to read and the timing is actually quite good - maybe I'll have it over my Christmas days off! As to the weather... It has been unusually warm here this fall too. (Northwestern Ontario Canada) Normally we have snow and minus temperatures after Halloween but, until today, our weather has been wonderful. Cold at night (-7) and +1-5 during the day. (Love that type of weather.) Today, however, we are back to reality. Winds, snow pellets, the works. Oh well, knew it had to come. Looking forward to the next Pitt book as the title sounds great - African Adventure (I think.) Haven't seen a listing for the next Monk. If I don't get an opportunitymm - Merry Christmas (Happy Christmas to those across the pond) and Happy New Year to everyone on the list. Wishing you a wonderful 2007 - much Health and Happiness! (Personally wouldn't mind wealth too but, at this time of the year, should not be pushing that too hard!)

Just finished no4 of the WW1 series, best yet. Anne finally got her padre up in the air with good action sequences. Cover a bit misleading as it appears to show a wartime wedding, but thats not in the book Set in 1917 the next one should cover the final year Still cannot get details of the Christmas one yet, anyone seen the title? Weather really weird in South England, leaves have only just begun to fall, spring flowers (primroses) are in bloom and other summer flowers have bloomed again. Still picking tomatos todays temperature 14 C In case we lose the Message Board again, Happy Christmas to all! Derrick

Ah, to view the world as only black and white - how rightous thou art. Become a doctor or a lawyer who does pro bono work and then lecture me. (Sorry folks, having one of those "don't get in my face" days....)

We have had this discussion many times before and you are just as boring as the rest. People make mistakes. Anne has not only turned her life around she has used it for good. If you are really interested in Anne's life look up what she has done. If that all you have to say I just have to say, stop scratching, the cut has healed.

Don't confuse the film with what actually happened 50 years ago. She's a wonderful author now, we enjoy her books so please stay off our message board

Does it really not bother anyone else that this woman, at the age of 16, helped beat another human being to death? Her age had nothing to do with it. When you're 16, you know what you're doing.
I avoid driving again over animals who are dead on the road after being unwittingly hit by a car. I can't imagine knowingly killing a living, breathing person by hitting them repeatedly with a brick. And getting only five years.
And bouncing back and back-pedaling by saying, "Oh, I don't remember anything, and I was just a girl" (again, at 16, you know) and becoming a hugely rich author who raves about being able to take bubble baths. Where's Honora's bubble bath? She died on a dirt path in horrible pain. She was just trying to be a good mother.
I think "Anne Perry" is full of. I think her becoming religious (whoo, 40 whole years!) and pretending that she's someone else now is complete garbage. I think that just because you can write complex stories does not make you a good person. I think she's a dark soul.
All of her fans...don't they know, can't they picture this woman helping to pulverize a woman with a brick...even at the age of 16? It's sick! It's wrong! That someone could even do that makes me sick to my stomach.
Yet, she's a famous author now. Good for her.
