  1. I agree with Terra, fantastically lengthy list! I have one to add, if I may! You must checkout The Secret Life of Mrs. London. I just finished it, you will not be disappointed! Rising feminist, political drama, fabulous love triangle....it just doesn't get better! I found it here, www.rebecca-rosenberg.com. Happy Reading!

    1. Thanks, Sally, for the suggestion. It does sound interesting. I've added it to my list!
