[close] "...how much nearer can we come to understanding any one of the myriad dead who have gone to their graves, carrying their real secrets, of motive and essence and personality, into the silence with them?" Norah Lofts, The Brittle Glass, 1942 One of our favorite authors is the wonderful Norah Lofts and many of her books are, to our great delight, being reprinted. NL wrote many novels, mostly historical, mostly with rural settings, all wonderfully crafted and intelligently and emotionally engaging. She also wrote memorable novelised histories of Anne Boleyn, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Katharine of Aragon, Richard Coeur de Lion and many others, in addition to several non fiction subjects. She also wrote under the pseudonyms Peter Curtis and Juliet Astley.
