Smorgasbord Blogger Daily – Wednesday 12th May 2021 – Filmreview Beetley Pete, #BookReview Olga Nunez Miret, #Gingercake Elizabeth Merry,

A small selection of posts I have enjoyed in the last few days and I hope you will head over to enjoy in full.. thanks Sally.

The first post today is from Pete Johnson.. Beetley Pete and is a film review for a film that sounds both heartwarming and inspiring.

Film Review: My Feral Heart (2016)

Every so often, a British film-maker delivers a low-budget independent film that far exceeds the output of the famous directors and massive Hollywood studios. ‘My Feral Heart’ is a fine example of that. Directed by Jane Gull, and starring Steven Brandon, this film won fourteen international awards, yet is little-known in this country. Thanks to BBC 4, I was able to watch it, and I will say from the start that it is exceptional. 

Head over to find out Pete’s thoughts on this film and watch the trailer:

The next post is a review from Olga Nunez Miret for Hyde: There is not Jekyll, only Hyde by Craig Russell.

Hi all: I bring you a book that will be published in a couple of days by a writer whose previous book I enjoyed. Recommended to readers of historical fiction who love a touch of the Gothic/horror.

Cover of the book Hyde by Craig Russell with a Celtic design, of three spirals in Gold, the triskelion, on a green and black background.

Hyde: A thrilling Gothic masterpiece from the internationally bestselling author by Craig Russell

When it comes to Gothic crime, Craig Russell is peerless. Absolutely stunning.’ – M W Craven

From international bestselling author Craig Russell comes a modern Gothic masterpiece.

Edward Hyde has a strange gift-or a curse-he keeps secret from all but his physician. He experiences two realities, one real, the other a dreamworld state brought on by a neurological condition.

When murders in Victorian Edinburgh echo the ancient Celtic threefold death ritual, Captain Edward Hyde hunts for those responsible. In the process he becomes entangled in a web of Celticist occultism and dark scheming by powerful figures. The answers are there to be found, not just in the real world but in the sinister symbolism of Edward Hyde’s otherworld.

He must find the killer, or lose his mind. A dark tale. One that inspires Hyde’s friend . . . Robert Louis Stevenson.

The final post is a delicious recipe for ginger cakes from Elizabeth Merry...

Ginger Cake Recipe | An Easy One.

I made this cake yesterday; a recipe I hadn’t used for ages. The cake turns out very soft, a bit crumbly, and totally delicious. As you can see from the photograph here, I’m about to cut myself a (huge) slice and have it with lovely coffee.

  1. I love the sound of My Feral Heart and will see if I can track it down, Olga’s reviews are always honest and fair and this means that I’m going to have to squeeze another book into my poor old Kindle, and I’ve had a soft spot for ginger cake since I was a little girl – but I’m going to try and avoid Elizabeth’s recipe for as long as possible! xx

  2. Thanks, Sally, for including me in this post. It looks like I have started a ginger cake fashion! The last slice of mine is gone now. When it’s cooled I slice it and wrap the slices in tinfoil and put them in the freezer – otherwise I’d be in trouble!

  3. Hi, Sally! Great posts! I enjoy movie reviews almost as much as book reviews. Olga is a tireless book blogger/reviewer, and she’s excellent at it. That ginger cake looks scrumptious! Thanks for sharing❣️
