Mary Stewart started my love of reading and the written word, and an artful turn of phrase, when I was perhaps in Jr. High. This is my all time favorite. What we now call "romantic suspense" used to be called "gothic suspense." It was a great way to move to adult fiction, find some romance and mystery and learn about a foreign local. I still own most of her books and have lost track of how many times I have read this. Treat yourself. I would recommend all of her pre Merlin books, but my top favorites are "My Brother Michael", "This Rough Magic", "Airs Above the Ground" and "Madam, Will You Talk?" By the way, unlike so many books turned out these days, Mary Stewart's books are well written from a gramatical standpoint and well plotted. She excelled at describing a person or place so you could see it or them in your mind's eye. PLEASE PUT THIS AND OTHER MARY STEWART (pre Merlin) CLASSIC IN EBOOKS!

I read The Moonspinners years ago and it continues to be one of my favorite books. It is a first class story set in a fascinating location. I love that Nicola is a very ordinary young woman who finds herself embroiled in a situation she cannot in good conscience leave alone. Nicola sets off to do a little exploration on a unexpectantly gained day in the White mountains of Crete and finds Mark who has been shot while witnessing a murder. Mark's brother is missing; his guide is tied to his side and unable to look for Colin (the brother). Nicola intervenes as an angel of mercy and tends Mark for a night while Lambis, the guide does some recon and gets supplies ... AND THEN .. the guys want to protect Nicola by keeping her out of the situtation .... so much for that thought. The story is great ... just a good read ... it is also suitable for tweens because the story is more suspense/adventure romance, than being filled with sex. I read a lot of romance and it is uncommon that a book without a little sex can hold my interest. Mary Stewart's other books are along the same lines and are good too.

Nicola takes some vacation in a small town in Crete named Agios Georgios. She plans to have a tranquil, quiet vacation. However, her plans change completely when she helps Mark, a man that has seen a murder performed. She is in serious trouble when she gets herself involved. How will she pass unnoticed under the murderer¿s eyes? This is one of those books that you absolutely have to read. It is a book full of suspense. It keeps you reading until you finish it. As a matter of fact, I couldn¿t get to sleep until I finished it and I enjoyed the way Mary Stewart described the Greece landscape.
