Hello Mary, I thrust you and your family are well regardless of the 6th Covid 19 wave. We are all tired of this world pandemic but it lingers on in spite of all our collective efforts. As usual, I am re-reading many of your older books this winter to keep my mind off current events, like the horrific war in Ukraine. My Ukrainian ancestors came to Canada to escape the Soviet Union oppression and to make a better life for themselves and their children. I pray constantly for my family left behind in Ukraine and for all Ukrainians fighting this unnecessary war. Are wars ever necessary? Your stories revolving the Napoleon and Crimean wars give us insight into the minds of former dictators and their evil motive. I recently re-read More than a Mistress and enjoyed this story immensely! You are my favourite author of the Regency period and I promote your books to everyone God bless you and your family and keep you safe! Your servant and loyal reader, Gloria.
