Patti Abbott

This is a name that has never been mentioned before-thanks for remembering her.

George Kelley

I have a few Dorothy Salisbury Davis novels in my Read Real Soon stack. I'll have to move them up after reading your review.

BV Lawson

Like many other fine authors, it's a shame that Davis isn't better known among the general public, and despite her protestations to the contrary about creating good series characters, Julie Hayes was a strong contender. Among her others, it's hard to know where to start, since everyone seems to have their own different favorite...

Martin Edwards

Very interesting. I don't know this book, but you've made me want to find it.

BV Lawson

Few of her books are still in print, but my local public library had a copy. Another reason it will be good to have publishing-on-demand or ebooks for older titles by authors so they'll always be available.
