#EmptyShelf20: May

Last month I read: The Admiral's Daughter by Margaret Stuart Lane My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book has sat on my shelves from younger days, and all I could remember about it was that the main character is drugged to sleep for 24 hours and wakes up in a stress that she’s run out of time for an urgent task, but it’s become clear that the time has cleared her head and she…
