Here some stuff about the books I read. For now I'm mostly using the bits I write for my Dutch online bookgroup so the text is usually mostly in Dutch but the quotes from English books are in the original.

Ghost Children ~ Sue Townsend (1997)

Typical Townsend easy reading. Short fast sentences. Clearly sketched characters. Story of a man who revisits the woman who aborted their baby (which he had wanted to keep) 17 years earlier. Intertwined with a young hopeless couple with a (battered) baby and another on the way. And a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Ok, I'll admit, it was the blurred dog photo on the front that first drew me to the book. Good 'in between' sort of read.
