I vaguely recall reading a few of her books back in the 1980s, and I actually credit her with turning me onto historical fiction.

Last weekend I downloaded a few of her books onto my Kindle. And, OMG...I love her. I haven't put my Kindle down since. 4 books in 6 days.

Can't really describe why she's so good - but I love how she writes. The period detail, the pathos, the slightly sinister overtones, the hints of the supernatural.

Love her smile

Have just been on and bought an absolute shed-load of her books, all for about £27...with free postage smile

She's my favourite historical novelist, the House trilogy is just fabulous. Hmmm, I need to get reading again...

Luckily my mum has lots of old copies which I've borrowed, and a copy of years ago I bought a boxset from the Book People. But I will check out!

Her house was turned into a B&B for a bit I think (not sure if it still is)...

Oh and I meant Suffolk trilogy, not House trilogy! confused

Oh, I would love to stay in her house smile

If you go on Abe, click on their Free Postage, then type in Norah Lofts as your author. Bargin smile

I've just finished reading Jassy, and I actually cried at the end blush
