Mela (melabooks) | 29 comments I have started to read it today. A few pages and I remember why I adore Elizabeth Taylor's novels.

By the way, I want to thank you, Karen. I do not know when I would read them without this group. I find it a really good idea for motivation and I am thinking which writer I will try to read this way next year.

Karen, I hope to begin next week, Currently doing a re-read of A Wreath of Roses, which I read a few years back.

Hi Canadian, that's great to hear, will look forward to reading what you think



Canadian Reader I don’t know a thing about this book going in, other than that it is some sort of love story. However, games and hiding of the psychological variety are big in Taylor’s novels. So I am expecting some of the usual . . . I’m interested in looking at the ways Taylor continued to develop as a novelist. A Wreath of Roses was a dark book, and I am curious about how she followed it. Will there be an unmarried, unwilling-to-commit-but-eager-to-listen-and-sympathize male character? What about an elderly woman, a novelist/artist/creative type, or a self-centred young woman? I’ve come to expect these sorts of characters in Taylor’s novels. Will a new type of figure show up in this one?

Pamela (bibliohound) I just started this yesterday but it's a very easy read and I'm pretty sure I'll finish by the end of the year! So far I am enjoying the way Taylor builds her characters - after 30 pages I felt I knew them so well, but I am also expecting some surprises ahead.
