· The Mirror and the Light, by Hilary Mantel
The final installment of the two-time Booker Prize winner Hilary Mantel’s trilogy has finally arrived. This historical novel deals with the period following Anne Boleyn’s death, the peak of Oliver Cromwell’s power and wealth, and later his downfall and execution. If this were not enough to show this is one of the best books so far, it might be worth mentioning that Hilary Mantel won both of her Booker Prizes with the predecessors of this novel.

The main character is trying to come to terms with the fact the climate crisis cannot be solved and that her child will have to grow in that world.
