The Essex Serpent


Sarah Perry

I've been sucked into the heart of this vivid, superstitious novel through the author's richly descriptive narrative. Perry's characters are entirely believable with their flaws and motives. The prose is so tightly worded, it's hard to imagine getting any more bang for your buck in each sentence!

Etymology: the roots of words




Meaning flower, bouquet. In 1533, a motto or line of poetry engraved within a ring; variant of poesy. The meaning of a flower/bouquet is first recorded in 1573, and was thought to come from the use of flowers to express sentiments like those engraved in rings.

I love hearing from people and I'm pretty generous with my time.
