THE OTHER DAUGHTER– on sale for $2.99!
Four years ago, I went back to 1920s London and set a book in the hectic milieu of the Bright Young People, the world of Nancy Mitford and Evelyn Waugh, of absurd costume parties and deliberately crazy slang and drinking too much because there was a war to end all wars not a decade ago,…Read More

Doesn’t that header…Read More
More OTHER DAUGHTER
