[close] In this group, you will find great literature by British female authors. Recently we have added in female authors from other countries also. The books were first published approximately 30+ years ago. These books nourish the heart and warm the soul, and their authoresses have wit, charm, and intelligence; everything to make a wonderful story. So make yourself a cup of tea, and if you fancy, a nice scone with jam and cream, pull up a chair and let’s begin. This is a private ladies-only group. Please submit a request if you wish to join. Please no lurkers. Inactive members will be removed periodically.
