'Gaby, Lost and Found' is a short book, but I would suggest it to all ages. I would not suggest it to anybody who doesn't like a book full of emotion. There is not any adventure in this book. The characters and writing are wonderful.
"Fair and Tender Ladies" by Chris Nickson is the sixth book in the Richard Nottingham Historical Series. Coming in to a series is never optimal, but this books seems to stand well on its own. Heaven knows that there is usually a lot of textural depth to a series, but if wishes were fishes we'd all cast nets.
When I first discovered The Quest was about the search for the Holy Grail, I thought I was in for another dose of puerile pap ala Dan Brown; but I was wrong. Whew! The Quest is tense and taut, and unwinds against the back-drop of the Ethiopian revolution and civil war of the 1970's.
This is a must read for people who enjoy history with a bit of magic! The history behind the story is between Queen Mary and her sister Elizabeth during the time that Queen Mary had Elizabeth imprisoned as a suspected traitor to the throne. This main character of this book is Elizabeth's maid servant, Meg, who happens to be a witch.
