Have you got any books that if you mention them that people don't seem to have heard of it??

For me, it is 'Danny Yates Must Die' by Stephen Walker.

Oooh, or a book I had as a child... 'The Rare Spotted Birthday Party'.

Maybe if we list our unknown books here we will find someone else who's heard of them!!!!

Fall On Your Knees by Anne Marie MacDonald. An excellent book which no one, except one friend, has ever heard of! She has a new book out now, which is waiting on my shelf to be read.

I've read Fall on your Knees! I enjoyed the read, but dh thought it a bit twisted.

Oh, someone else who's read it!

Flamesparrow, this is from Amazon:
Synopsis
A story of four sisters tied by inescapable family bonds, of miracles, terrible secrets, attempted murder and an extraordinary love affair. The settings range from haunted Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, through the battlefields of World War I, to the emerging jazz scene of New York City.

Sounds good - I likes a bit of attempted murder and terrible secrets!
