  3. Hi Mary Ann,

    I knew both of your words this week, although to be fair I have only just learned what the definition of compline is, from reading my last completed book 'St Bartholomew's Man'.

    I do love the sound of scudi, so very Italian when pronounced correctly and with the right accent!

    Thanks for sharing and I m off now to check out your review of the book,

    Yvonne.

  4. Sorry! I just realised that you have only recently received your copy of Color Song.

    In that case ... I hope that you enjoy the read.
