Rosie is a lively little tank engine who idolises Thomas, which sometimes bothers him. She works as both a shunting engine and a mixed traffic engine. She used to work mainly at the Knapford Shunting Yards, but is now based at Vicarstown. Rosie began idolising Thomas to the point of hero-worship and imitation. Though this is said to be the most sincere form of flattery, it only served to irritate Thomas whilst he was trying to deliver a special birthday post train to Alice at High Farm.

An earthquake ravages the coast, its force devastating the island. In the aftermath comes a stranger: an Englishwoman, destitute but for the clothes she wears. Olivia welcomes the stranger into her home, the potter's house. But as Kitty melts into the family and the village community, so Olivia begins to sense that her mysterious visitor threatens all she holds dea. iction Historical.

The Potter's House book. In The Potter's House, Rosie Thomas has constructed a story that demonstrates the complexities of the human spirit. Olivia Giorgiadis has left her English roots behind  . The relationships between the various and disparate characters are drawn so convincingly that the reader is quickly drawn into the novel, wanting to know more about these complicated people. Her skill in creating such believable characters is matched by her ability to tell a fascinating tale in which all human emotions are explored.

The "Potter's House" skillfully weaves together the contrasting threads of the lives of two English women from similarEnglish backgrounds, strangers to each other at the outset, but with common links that are only gradually revealed. Two women thrown together on a tiny, isolated Greek island in the aftermath of a natural disaster. A closeness, which rapidly begins to reveal unhealthy undertones, develops between the two women. Something of a Gothic sense of inevitabie tragedy grows steadily as the plot unfolds, leading to a spinechilling twist as realisation of an unresolved "truth" finally emerges, a forseeable "shock-truth" which can only be resolved within the mind of the discerning reader.

if you like your endings happy, clear-cut and unequivocal then perhaps this is not the book for you. On the other hand, if you like to be drawn into the tantalising webs of intrigue that surround the private lives of those around us, then waste no time in getting involved in this thought-provoking novel.

Incidentally, if you have ever wondered what life might be like in a tiny, remote Greek island-village once the hot season ends and we tourists have packed away our suncream and bathing suits and returned to our homes, then you need wonder no more. Ms Thomas has succeeded in drawing a highly believable picture of life in such a loaction as the chill of a Greek-island winter in the Med draws in, with cash and resources in short supply and the need to carefully husbanded both if they are to see the locals through the lean times of winter, without the opportunities to generate income until spring and the tourists return, then wonder no more, The background to this chilling, in more ways than one, story make it absolutely clear what you could expect if, like the central character of the story, you were to find yourself, an unknown interloper in a strange place, stranded in adversity in a place where 'hospitality' to the stranger, as it is in Greece, is mandatory.

A gripping read and one to which I know I shall return time and time again, and each time finding freash clues and threads to unravel....

Having never read anything by this author I was a little skeptical but willing to give her a try. The book was very easy to get into, and the author did a great job of describing the island setting in Greece. At the end I found myself asking where the next chapter was, because surely this cannot be the end. Maybe the reader is just supposed to draw their own conclusions. It's like going to a movie and the plot is so ambiguous and you spend so much time trying to figure it out, that it looses all of it's entertainment value. Probably will never read any of her other books.

Spoiler Ahead! I thought this was a great book. Other reviewers complained about the ending leaving the reader in limbo. I believe that the ending was the key to the entire story, kind of like how the ending of "The Sixth Sense" changes your perception of the events in the movie. My interpretation of the ending was that it reveals that Kitty actually died in the earthquake at the beginning of the book. The entire rest of the story was a surreal "flashback" about the life that never happened, i.e. the life she would have led had the tragic event of her childhood never occurred. Olivia's is the life that Kitty should have had.
This was a pretty good book until the ending. I could not wait to get there and when I did it made me want to throw the book away. The characters were good and the setting and all but there were a lot of things that left me wondering. The ending made me want to say "It that all there is." I would not recommend this book.
