I love your books and have read them for years. You develop characters beautifully, not resorting to stereotypes or characters that resurface under different names, book after book. My favorite may still be Silent Melody. Also, I’ve just re-read Someone to Trust and do not understand the criticism of other commenters. While the 9 year age difference may have been insurmountable in the early 19th century, many issues facing Elizabeth and Colin are not unlike today. The same holds true for Silent Melody.
One request: will you ever tell us what happens to the characters in the future? Many novels today have an epilogue, which I enjoy because it give us a hint of the main characters ‘happy ever after” and in the end, isn’t that one of the great appeals of your novels?
