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.

A Reluctant Queen: The Love Story of Esther - Joan Wolf A creampuff of a novel that tries to take a Jewish story and make it somewhat Christian. The writing is leaden and slow, the author mangles most of the story (Esther's real name is never given, she eats pork (!!!), the real reason that Haman wants to kill all the Jews, the king rewarding Mordecai, blah, blah, blah, blah). A real snoozer and not worth the time and effort to find or read. Not recommended, and just barely three stars.
