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.

Sibling rivalry, scandal and two sisters

Harriet and Isabella: A Novel - Patricia O'Brien

A very involving tale of two sisters, Harriet and Isabella, members of the large, well-known Beecher family, and the trial that drove them apart. This is a carefully plotted, intricate novel about slavery, women's rights, and family  loyalties, all gathered up in a story that really made me think. Those who like their historical fiction to be well-written and accurate will enjoy this one. I give it four stars and a recommendation.
