THROWBACK THURSDAY PICK OF THE WEEK

Mary Stewart first book was published in 1955. I had just graduate from College and was working at the time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AUTHOR.

MARY’S books are stand alones. I see that I have miss a couple of them and they are now on my TBR list.

They have finally gotten Mary Stewart’s books in the Kindle format. I have read most of her books several times over the years. Since I have been wanting to read them again and I have a gift card. I purchased two of my adored books. I consider THE IVY TREE one of my best books of all time.

FROM  GOODREADS:

A TRICK OF COLORING… HER WALK… THE WAY SHE SMILED…

An English June in the Roman Wall countryside; the ruin of a beautiful old house standing cheek-by-jowl with the solid, sunlit prosperity of the manor farm – a lovely place, and a rich inheritance for one of the two remaining Winslow heirs. There had been a third, but Annabel Winslow had died four years ago – so when a young woman calling herself Annabel Winslow comes ‘home’ to Whitescar, Con Winslow and his half-sister Lisa must find out whether she really is who she says she is.

Mary Grey has nothing to look forward to except a future as colorless as her name. So if she looks, walks, and smiles so much like the glamorous missing heiress Annabel Winslow, why not be her for a little while? To the lonely young woman–living in a dreary furnished room, faced with an uncertain future–the impersonation offered intriguing possibilities.

If Mary looked so much like the missing heiress, why should she not be an heiress? And so plain Mary became the glamorous Annabel. But she did not live happily ever after. In fact, she almost did not live at all. Because someone wanted Annabel Winslow missing … permanently. “

FROM GOODREADS:

“Artist Jennifer Silver has come to the picturesque, secluded Valley of the Storms in the French Pyrenees to meet with a young cousin who is about to enter the convent there — only to discover that the young woman has died in a dreadful car accident. Or did she?

Lies abound in this strange and frighteningplace, but seeking the truth could lead Jenniferto her own violent death.”

  1. Oh my word. Mary Stewart’s books are amazing. My favorites are, This Rough Magic, Airs Above the Ground, Wildfire at Midnight and Thunder on the Right. Great Throwback Thursday! 🙂

    I remember This Rough Magic too, but I haven’t read the two you just bought. They sound good and actually have a similar theme—someone who died but maybe didn’t.
