    I picked up the hardback at a National Trust Shop, made a note of the title and ordered it for my Kindle Whoever loaded it to the Kindle made a hash of the job It is completely out of order Stopping mid sentence and resuming several pages on, then going back to where you left off Don t waste your money untill this is sorted out.
