Good book of short stories, well worth a read. Thank manybooks.net!

One of the better books I've ever encountered. VERY highly recommended. Action, romance, history--it's all here, woven masterfully and spellbindingly together. I don't understand why this author is so grossly under-recognized--he was that good. This piece, for instance, easily surpasses more than one of Josef Conrad's--and he was a good writer, widely read.

An enjoyable read of stories, some quite short and others less so, of England--particularly the duchy of Cornwall, in the southwest--in earlier centuries. Most presented in the first persons of various characters, to varying ends; some droll, some mildly spooky; on the whole, quite entertaining and recommended for all ages.

Interesting action and adventure, but more than half the book is 1900 +/- British dialogue--too much for me.

Very nice, and large, collection of short stories, most of them set in Cornwall between 1840 and 1900.

A rather nice collection of short stories, varying in setting from the English civil war (Cromwell & Charles I) to the turn of the 20th century. An entertaining read.

I'm not much on these books of town gossip; I think this the first I've ever finished--says something for the writer and the story he wove. Give it a try, you might like it.

Good book! Though I think I've enjoyed some others by this author even more. He's good, very good!

Sure do thank manybooks.net for making his collection available!

Parker Pace - A Psychological Thriller That is Probably Going to Mess With Your Head
FEATURED AUTHOR - Parker Pace was born in the UK, but Seattle is her home. More than anything, she loves to read. Give her a good book, and she doesn't care about the rest. She also loves live musicals and the theater. It fascinates her to see a story come to life. For her, there’s nothing like it in the world. The last musical she saw was Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. They don’t play that one as much as they used to, but it has a beautiful score and she highly recommends it.  As our Author of the day, Parker tells… Read more
