Time for an intro

Post by love_uk » Mon August 31st, 2009, 6:54 am

Hi everybody! Found the link to this website on Susan Higginbotham's website, after reading the Traitor's Wife. Thanks BB,for steering me here. In the 3 weeks I've been on board, I've been posting like mad, on many different forums, as my HF tastes are quite eclectic & I've been reading HF since the '60s.

I love this site!!! I'm having a ball . . . my Excel HF TBR list is already 67 items long - full of suggestions from all of you. Many thanks!

Happy to be here :D
Joan
