Love this book. It is one of my all time favorites since I found it as a school fete in the early 1980's. My old copy is just that and very well read...even before finding my hand. I wish I could find it in reprint.
Absolutely great. Downloaded it, really liked it, and will probably buy it to give to someone. Much more than I had expected.
This is not a mystery -- it's more like a romance novel. No mystery plot. Weird, but true. It should definitely be recategorized.
