ZaraS  *book reviewer Does anyone know what she died of? All I could find on the news reports on the net was that she died in hospital.

Zara,

So far, there has been no reference to the specific cause of death; only that Ms. McCullough died after a prolonged illness.

Mariel Grey | 125 comments I haven't read any of her recent books, and indeed she had slipped off my "reading radar." Her older books were wonderful. I'll have to look at some of her more recent works. Thanks for the reminder and information about such a wonderful author.
