Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Williwaw: A Novel - Gore (1925-) Vidal A short but well-done novel that is set in World War II, in the Aleutian Islands. Caught in a storm while taking three officers to a nearly port. As the storm worsens, the crew and captain fight for survival and when the storm subsides, someone turns up missing. It's not quite a mystery, but I loved how the atmosphere and tension was created in this. It's a short novel, but there's hardly any wasted words here. It was listed as part of the Guardian's 1000 must read novels. Four stars overall, and recommended.
