The Moonspinners - Mary Stewart

I've sort of unintentionally immersed myself in a reading project that I'm referring to as "All The Vintage Ladies," with my recent Georgette Heyer, Phyllis Whitney and Barbara Michaels reads. 


This book gets a lot of love, here and on Goodreads, so I decided that it would be a good time to read it. This is my fourth Mary Stewart gothic romance - I've previously read Nine Coaches Waiting, Wildfire at Midnight and The Ivy Tree.


This one is set in Crete, which compelled me to google Agios Giorgios to get a mental picture:






Aaaand, now I want to go to Crete.


So far, I really love this book. Nicola Ferris is wonderfully adventurous, and the presumed love interest, Mark, seems honorable and divinely masculine.
