This is a series I have loved all my life ever since my Mother introduced me to it in my teens. I'm in the act of re-reading it right now.

Of all of them, I found KISSING KIN (Book #5) the least appealing both in characters and narrative. Still, Thane at her weakest is always an enjoyable read. Fond as I am of Bracken, I'm a complete sucker for Oliver (but then, I have this attraction to uniforms, even British ones).

For those who like the series, don't overlook some of her other titles (which at the time they were written were considered contemporary fiction). My favorites after the Williamsburg books are FROM THIS DAY FORWARD, TRYST (a beautiful haunting ghost story), and RIDERS IN THE WIND (her first published in 1928 or 1929).
