I’m delighted to welcome author Kate Field to the blog today to share a little #BookLove with us all. Before we find out all about her greatest love of all, here’s a little bit about Kate’s book, The Magic of Ramblings.
Kate Field lives in Lancashire with her husband, daughter and cat. The Magic of Ramblings is her first published novel.

Running away can be the answer if you run to the right place…
When Cassie accepts a job as companion to an old lady in a remote Lancashire village, she hopes for a quiet life where she can forget herself, her past and most especially men. The last thing she wants is to be drawn into saving a community that seems determined to take her to its heart – and to resuscitate hers…
Frances has lived a reclusive life at Ramblings, a Victorian Gothic mansion, for over thirty years and now Barney is hiding away there, forging a new life after his medical career ended in scandal. He doesn’t trust the mysterious woman who comes to live with his rich aunt, especially when she starts to steal Frances’ affection – and maybe his own too…
Favourite book from childhood
The Magic Faraway Tree books by Enid Blyton
The first book you fell in love with
Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery
Biggest book crush
The book character you’re totally in love with
Sydney Carton from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. He’s not an obvious choice at the start of the book, but the way he develops, and what he does for the woman he loves, make him a hero that is hard to match.
Weirdest book crush
Bertie Wooster from the books by PG Wodehouse. This may be influenced by the fact that Hugh Laurie played him in the TV adaptation!
Hardest break up
The book you didn’t want to end
Letters to the Lost by Iona Grey. Wonderful story, wonderful characters.
The one that got away
The book in your TBR or wish list that you regret not having started yet.
The Silent Hours by Cesca Major. It’s buried on my Kindle but I’m definitely going to read it this year!
Guilty Reading pleasure
Love one, love them all
Favourite series or genre
I love crime books, and my favourites at the moment are the Ruth Galloway books by Elly Griffiths.
Your latest squeeze
Favourite read of the last 12 months
The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett.
Blind date for a friend
If you were to set a friend up with a blind date (book) which one would it be?
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. Brilliantly written, funny, romantic – something for everyone!
Greatest love of all
Favourite book of all time.
Persuasion by Jane Austen. I will never tire of reading it.
Thanks Kate. Some great choices there. Anne of Green Gables is getting a few votes now – still one of my sister’s favourites. And another fan of Bertie Wooster 🙂 I agree that Hugh Laurie was fab in the TV show but that really is a weird book crush lol.
So what do you all think? Should I be adding any of these to my tbr? Make sure to join me next week for a little more #BookLove when I’m joined by Effie Speyer and Sarah Hardy.
Have a wonderfully bookish weekend all
