That's good to hear--they're The Handsome Road and This Side of Glory. (Pity the seller didn't have all three of the trilogy!)

I've read the first two and thought them quite good. The first is Deep Summer and gives you a good luck at settling Lousiana if I recall. You might try for an ILL, King County has it and they participate in the ILL program.

Good, wouldn't want you to start only to realize there are books before it. I tried to read that series but got bored with it.

Ordered The Kingmaker's Sisters by David Baldwin (NF about the sisters of--I know the suspense is killing you--Warwick the Kingmaker).

BB, I've been looking at that one, too. Book Depository is playing pricing games with that one, as well. On their site, it's 18 pounds plus free shipping; on Amazon, it's 10.11 pounds plus Amazon's mandatory shipping. I know that shipping a book from the UK doesn't cost as much as they claim -- I shipped some back last spring. Enuf to make me crazy. Anyway, it's one that I need to read at some point...

I ordered this one off BD's beta US site (I think that's what you call it) for $28. First time I've been able to use them, since their UK site has not accepted my debit card in the past. Here I was able to use PayPal.

Bought The Taste of Sorrow by Jude Morgan at Sarah's recommendation. Book Depository has made it disturbingly easy to buy books.

You won't regret it, BB! And (sigh) that is very true.
