I missed this too. I have read most of her books starting with The Pilot’s Wife years ago. I particularly liked Sea Glass and Fortune’s Rocks.

I agree with Lovetopaint, I have only found out by reading this thread today. I have enjoyed all her books and feel sad that there will be no more to look forward to.

Sorry to hear this.

What a shame. I wonder why we haven’t heard about her death on the news. I didn’t see it in the papers either. When I consider some of the twaddlle that the BBC put on at the end of early evening news....

I don't think I've read any of her books. Sad to hear she has died.

A great author and story-teller; my favourite of hers is 'The last time they met'. Couldn't put it down.

I've enjoyed many of her books and our book group discussed them several times. A very good writer.

Oh what sad news - Where or When is a book I've read over and over again, it just touches a certain time in my life. RIP.

I enjoyed The Pilot's Wife and several others of hers.

Brilliant author, I’m sure she’ll be regarded as a classic, in time.
I’ve several of her books on my ‘to read’ shelf. Maybe I’ll start one today.
