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.

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.

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.
