The Ivy Tree has the ideal thriller blend of plot, suspense, character drawing and good writing
Mary Stewart harvests a rewarding field. Her credible heroines get caught up in credible adventures; her place is deceptively gentle; her atmosphere perfect
She set the bench mark for pace, suspense and romance - with a great dollop of escapism as the icing
A comfortable chair and a Mary Stewart: total heaven. I'd rather read her than most other authors.
