About the Author
What People are Saying About This
"In the early 1950s Mary Stewart wrote wonderful novels filled with romance, mystery, honor, and courage. Her heroines were strong (but often didn't know it), smart (except when it came to themselves), and brave (which they discovered only when they were tested by life's vicissitudes). . . . For all readers who delight in women of courage and valor, and love to read about women coming into their own, Mary Stewart is for you. Among my favorites [is] Wildfire at Midnight." —Nancy Pearl
"[Here] is another of Miss Stewart's captivatingly spirited heroines, and the story is rich in uncertainty, excitement, and sheer narrative flow." —New York Times
