I think I can safely say you are my favorite historical romance author. There is something infinitely special about every single novel of yours I have read. They reach deep down and touch soul deep. I am so thankful for the love and care you pour into your characters, exploring not just their romantic lives but their family lives and even their spiritual lives. So many characters make me cry with their longing for love and connection, and then to see them surrounded by love and family and hope and joy at the end of the book is the absolute best eucatastrophe ending. I reread the short story The Best Gift every Christmas—it’s become sort of part of my Advent tradition! Thank you so much for the stories you’ve put into the world Ms. Balogh.
