All That Glitters by Linda Bennett Pennell
"I loved "All That Glitters!" It was such a wonderfully done atmospheric book, and the characters were so finely drawn. The setting was a character in and of itself and added to the overall suspense of the book. There was just enough "teases" to make " Read more of this review »
Confederado do Norte by Linda Bennett Pennell
"I found Confederado do Norte by Linda Bennett Pennell a stirring read. Fast paced, but with good descriptions of the people, the homes, the river and boats, etc. Her character development was well done, and I could not help but feel Mary Catherine's " Read more of this review »
