      A look at some books I picked up now that I'm free(ish) to choose some of my own reading again Books Mentioned: Educated by Tara Westover -Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy -How to Be. The book begins with thirty-three year old Prince Helmut Sternenhoch, wealthy aristocrat, and confidante and favourite of Kaiser ‘Willy’ Wilhelm, taking an interest in Helga, a relatively poor seventeen year old girl. One’s initial impression of the Prince is emphatically a negative one.
