[quote=""annis""]She's actually written under other names as well, and crime/mystery is her favoured genre- she never wrote all that many historical novels. Maybe she hit the HF slump of the early '90s and decided to diversify. I do remember reading Longest Winter
and Distant Land
back in the day - 1980s? Probably the closest comparison would be with Emma Drummond.
