The Dark Tower

by Phyllis Bottome

A beautiful and classic love story. The characters are nicely delineated and it conveys the feel of the period.

The Three Brothers

by Eden Phillpotts

Three brothers and their interwoven story in the setting of Dartmoor in the 1800's.Usually I am not very attracted by descriptions of scenery but here they are so remarkable and vivid they illuminate the whole book.
The story is one of redemption, the characters very individual and well drawn. The style and types are
typical of the time. It is not fast moving but is beautiful in many ways and the story has its twists and turns.

Madeline Payne, the Detective's Daughter

by Lawrence L. Lynch

The previous reviewer has described this book so well, that I have nothing to add but corroboration.
Read and enjoy. An unusual book.
