I just finished reading a book entitled A Week in Winter. I enjoyed it very much. The book was filled with interesting characters and typical British humor. The author who is British is Maeve Binchy. Unfortunately she recently passed away.
I mention she's a British writer because over the past several months I have read several books by English authors and I find I really enjoy them.
My first introduction to British literature was when I was a boy reading Dickens. Also as a boy I read Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame which I loved.
Then much later came college where I read many British poets which I didn't like so much. I'm definitely a novel person.
It wasn't until recently that I returned to British authors. First, The Clifton Chronicles by Jeffrey Archer. That's a series of what's going to be a total of 7 books. I've read four. The fifth is due out soon.
Then there was Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson.
All of these were great reads and when I'm done with a couple of other books I have waiting, I'm going to return to Maeve Binchy.
By the way, Maeve Binchy and Helen Simonson are women authors which is a blog in itself.
There's always a good book out there. Discovering new authors to read can be a fun adventure.
