    A few from my 2017 and 2018 lists:
    Home: J Swinney
    How it works – The Cat: Ladybird
    A Legacy of Spies: John le Carré
    The key of all unknown: K A Hitchins
    By a departing light: Ian Jennings
    Becoming friends of time: John Swinton
    Empire of the Sun: JG Ballard
    Some of these were re-reads. I’ll leave you to work out which were fiction/non-fiction/Christian!
