    We often don t realize the comparative idiocy of youth until we re older Awhile ago, we had a new employee in my company Newly graduated from college, she s only 22 The rest of us, being old, wise, ancient creatures of mid 20 to 30 somethings, looked upon her with contempt She s a baby we howled I was so stupid when I just graduated from college and I tho

    3.5 stars Like most Mary Stewart mystery romances, this book is a little dated usually it s the massive smoking, nylon nightgowns and alpha heroes in MS novels this time it s the ESP Also, my paperback s 1970 s cover didn t help Still, I thought it was an enjoyable read Mary Stewart really knows how to evoke the scenery, whether it s exotic locations or the Engl

    There is a reason why I have always loved Mary Stewart She can grab me and keep me and not release me until the last word is down on the last page I love her mix of mystery and romance, and having read this so long ago that I had zero memory of it, it was like a new mystery and a new romanceWhat Joy I know others will always argue with me that she isn t a serious writer, but I don t

    3.5 I ve finished pondering my review.This tale of Bryony her cousins was not a comfortable read for me.This isn t one of my favourites Part of it might be my modern ideas about property Maybe in the 1970 s Ashley Court would have been a giant white elephant, but Byrony s willingness to walk away from valuable possessions is baffling to me.Part of it is my lack of interest in the paranorma

    A re read from several decades ago, the suspense novels of Mary Stewart never fail to please In this offering, penned during the groovy 1970 s, Stewart was no doubt making Touch Not the Cat relevant for the time period by adding the gift of telepathy to her heroine Bryony Ashley, and Bryony s mysterious telepathic lover.Who is this mind melding hero Is it one of her cousins Emory,

    Crossposted to Gothic Book Reviews 2 stars it was okay.First, a warning a character in this book uses the n word, which shocked me in a Mary Stewart novel.I liked the telepathy elements of this book, and the setting a crumbling manor house is always a favorite However, not a lot happened here Mostly the heroine drifts from conversation to conversation and things happen around her she s not very proactive The ending i
