Ok weird, yesterday I get an email saying that a book I ordered from an Amazon seller was finally shipped and the charge finally showed up at my bank site. I thought, well that won't get here for a week or more, oh well. Then today there was the book in the mail box!

Sarah Duncan is lovely (she's a friend. Hope you enjoy the read).

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

I enjoyed this one. It took me a while to get into it, but I enjoyed it.

Oddly enough I havent liked anything else by the author.
