Noted writer Mary Stewart passed earlier this year. My favorite book of hers was Airs Above The Ground but she could be relied upon to deliver a good story.
Thanks--I didn't know she'd died. Nice obit here.
Simply one of the finest writers of romantic suspense, ever. Fast-paced, gripping, with smart heroines and moments of unexpected emotion. I can't even think of the scene in Airs Above the Ground where the old Lippizaner stallion hears the music and begins to "dance" without tears in my eyes.
