Dear Mrs. Balogh, I grew up in Canada reading and loving Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. I was recruited as an RN in my hometown by a hospital in the United States which desperately needed nurses. I was 22 years of age at the time and thought it would just be temporary. I have lived in the U.S. since 1977, 47 years, and love both places. I have always loved reading everything! I decided to look up Georgette Heyer’s novels to reread. Also started reading a few other similar authors and discovered yours. May I say you are an absolutely incredible author on so many levels!!! I reserve one of your books as a special treat for myself! Your foresight, your sensitivity, your inclusion of prominent social issues, like the unfairness of class distinctions based on wealth or pedigree or gender, on the defense of women’s rights and independence, of wounded war veterans and the handicapped and all of them all written with exquisite suspense, wonderful themes and complex, noble but very flawed and human characters have blown me away!!!! God bless you for your talent, hard work and determination and for bringing great joy into my life and to the lives of very many I am sure. The best to you and your lovely family. Thank you!
