"Thornyhold" sounds suspiciously like a new title for an old book? The story description seems very, very familiar, but I read several Mary Stewart years ago and my memory is hazy.

Erika

I apologize: As soon as I saw the book jackets of several editions I realized I had read it with this title. I enjoyed it; odd to forget a title completely.

Cornflower

It's one of MS's later books and seems to be less well known than some. Thus far, (apart from the presence of the cat) the jacket is highly inappropriate, but it's a very pleasant read.

My mother has just read this, and enjoyed it, so when I saw it in a car boot sale at the weekend I bought it (for 20p!). I'm only a few pages in, but I love the opening and am enjoying it so far.

Cornflower

Me too!

Thornyhold is wonderful, my favourite Mary Stewart story I think. I've read it probably three times and once recommended it to a friend who said she ended up staying up most of the night reading it as she couldn't put it down!

I can see why, Lori - I loved it too!
