Sophie Ward's six best books

Sophie Ward is an English actress perhaps best known in Britain for her long-running roles in Heartbeat and Holby City.

One of her six favorite books, as told to the Daily Express:
by Charles Dickens

This has always been a favourite. It’s a huge book which you can tuck into with its central character being the Thames, oily, dark and with its secrets. I’m a big Dickens fan and this is a book I could read any time.
Read about another book on Ward's list.

Our Mutual Friend appears on Richard Francis' list of the top 10 pubs in literature.

In the season two finale of Lost, the character Desmond says he carries around Charles Dickens' Our Mutual Friend because he wants that to be the last book he reads before dying.
