Happy Birthday, Charlotte Lamb!
So Happy Birthday to Charlotte Lamb, novelist extraordinaire!
My scanner isn't working again, so no new photo this time. Apologies for that. I'll get it fixed asap. But here are some of my personal favourites from among her books: Dark Dominion, The Tilthammer, Sweet Compulsion, and of course, a popular favourite from her golden era at Mills & Boon, Call Back Yesterday.
Meanwhile, if you have any favourites of your own, do leave a comment and let me know. I may be able to arrange a feature on any requests you may have, such as a Lamb book you've heard about but not yet read.
And do continue to ask about books you haven't been able to find online, or whose titles you've forgotten. Someone out there may have the answer you're looking for.
Now for a little plea.
Although this blog gets hundreds of hits every week, very few people leave comments, which means it's hard to know if I'm hitting the right note or not. So to encourage me to blog more often, do please leave comments to let me know if you've found my features on Lamb books interesting, or if you'd rather read other types of features, perhaps. Or contribute your own reviews and reappraisals. I'd also be happy to feature scholarly articles on Lamb books, plots, influence on later writers, or her style of writing.
Basically, I'm open to new ideas. Try me!
