Book cover: Tim Weaver - Never Coming Back

Reading is a joy which we know that many of our community enjoy, particularly now; the weather is miserable and we’re not supposed to go out, other than for essentials. Whether you listen to audio books, read large print or use an electronic device such as a Kindle, there are so many different types of books to enjoy. They can be bought or borrowed from a variety of sources. Calibre offer a free service to anyone who has a print disability ( Your local library may also offer audio books to borrow for free.

We would love to compile a list of book recommendations from our community, for our community. To kick things off, my favourite author is Tim Weaver who writes fiction novels about a character called David Raker and his work finding missing people. It’s a bit of a twist on the usual detective character. I think my favourite Raker book is “Never Coming Back” (pictured) which was first published in 2013. In this book he investigates a missing family who appear to have simply vanished. Dinner is still cooking and the TV is on. It was a Richard & Judy Book Club pick and a national book award nominee.
