Hearts And Minds | Rosy Thornton

St Radegund's College, Cambridge, which admits only women students, breaks with one hundred and sixty years of tradition by appointing a man, former BBC executive James Rycarte, as its new Head of House. As Rycarte fights to win over the Fellowship in the face of opposition from a group of feminist dons, the Senior Tutor, Dr Martha Pearce, faces her own battles: an academic career in stagnation, a depressed teenage daughter and a marriage which may be foundering. Meanwhile, the college library is susbiding into the fen mud and the students are holding a competition to see who can 'get a snog off the Dean'. The question on everyone?s lips is how long will Rycarte survive at St Radegunds without someone?s help?

#BookSpinBingo Col5, #DoubleSpin

Pick!
The cover might suggest light and fluffy but it‘s not. Nor is it heavy, either: just smart. Martha has an important role at her college, and balances the needs and concerns of students and faculty while assisting a new Head “Master” - the first time a male has held the top spot in this all female highly regarded institution. She has troubles at home to balance as well & is always the ultimate in composure.

BkClubCare Can all end well for everyone?! Can this amazing tomato plant really grow some awesome fruit? Will Esther continue to tolerate more book + dog photo ops? Will Care begin canvassing for womens rights and bodily autonomy? God Bless America. 1mo
Ruthiella Good luck with the tomato plant and the canvassing. I do think you can depend on Esther‘s continued patience. Dogs are wonderfully dependable like that! ❤️🐶 1mo

This book has been on my tbr for FAR TOO LONG and I am embarrassed that a decade has gone by since acquiring. It is my June #BookSpinDouble and it is a shame that THAT is what is finally kicking me in the butt to read it!

Esther won‘t even look at me. #DogsofLitsy #whpg

Aw, last week of month: figure out books to be read for a #BookSpinBingo, which to get on next month‘s card, check status on current challenges & pick new challenges! I‘m overwhelmed but enthusiastically keep piling on. This time it is for #20BooksofSummer (onhand unread bookstack upper left). Also want to post anything on Litsy for a dopamine-invite and show off my latest pie #AppleCherryPie #CaresPieShow. Ok, that is all. Carry on 📖 📚 🥧

RaeLovesToRead Mmmmm pie 🥰 3mo
keys_on_fire Those pies look delish!! I love pies, but as a singleton, I end up eating the whole thing myself (which I don‘t need!) so I don‘t often have it. Wish there were more pie shops around…Good luck with your reading goals!! 3mo
Nutmegnc Yeah pie! Glad you finally made one!! 2mo
BkClubCare @Nutmegnc - I know, right?! It felt good. And, I didn‘t give any to neighbors 😂 2mo
