This book was delightful. I really enjoyed Charity, the heroine, with her mad driving skills and complete lack of any instinct for self-preservation. David, the 13-year-old boy she befriends, was completely delightful. And the hero,(show spoiler)
was not nearly as appealing as Charity's dead husband, Johnny, but I didn't hate him either.
This was a twisty, fun, classic piece of romantic suspense set in the south of France in a post-WWII world. One of my favorite Mary Stewart's so far - and so much better than Touch Not the Cat!
