I'm on a binge---reading everythig she wrote! Would love to find somebody to talk with about her stuff--but I don't think she belongs in "romance..."

Yet she's not exactly contemporary fiction...I don't know how to place her.

I've finished and put back up several by her---BEST were Scarlet Feather and Quentins--they had tons of overlapping story lines. But the super good news is I have several more coming, and I am NOT going to open a single one until I go on vacation! It's killin' me as they come in every couple days!!

Opening one of her books is like entering a fully populated Irish small-town world. I love it!

After looking at the other categories, I think contemporary fiction is probably the best choice! I have read, and own, all of her books. She is one of my favorite authors. I prefer her earlier works over more recent writings. My favorite is Echoes. It is, perhaps, my favorite book ever. I have reread it many, many times. I also love Light A Penny Candle and Firefly Summer. I hope you will continue to post your thoughts about other books of hers once you read them.
