My mother loved this writer. We had a ton of her books when I was growing up. I remember reading THE GABRIEL HOUNDS, THE AIRS ABOVE THE GROUND, TOUCH NOT THE CAT and all the others when I was a teen. And I really enjoyed the movie version of THE MOON-SPINNERS. Just a few years ago I started collecting Stewart's US editions for the specatacular dust jacket art by Charles Geer. She sure lived to a ripe old age! RIP, Mary.

That's how I first came to her, too, John - through my Mom's book collection! She had a lot of Stewart and Grace Livingston Hill books (along with regular mystery books), but I prefer Stewart to Hill. I envy and admire her success and living to a ripe old age, too. She will be missed by many.

I started with the Arthurian books, and have slowly worked backward towards the early books like this one. They used to be so easy to find, but I wanted the hardcovers with the nice DJs, and those now not so easy. I should just get the paperback and try this.

If you don't mind not owning them, Richard, check your local library - I found some titles there (hardcover).
