I'm very grateful for the letters I've received from readers of The Sceptre. Historian Bruce Pauley says it's 'a gripping story, well told' and 'contains a large number of facsts that I can refer to in my history lectures.' Author John Weitz says it's an 'eminently fair view of the Austrians.' Editor Jules Siegel sayd it shows 'masterly command of the material...very entertaining and surprisingly funny.' Author Meredith Young-Sowers says it's 'marvelous...an extraordinary tale of romance, intrigue, spiritual dissscovery, and just plain great adventure.' Editor and author Chris Jennison says it's 'a very fine book indeed...demonstrates tremenous research...an irresistible tale of a woman's quest to understand her roots and passions.' Jean Ardell, director of the writing program for the U. of California, says it's 'not to be missed.' Dr. Carolyn Myss, author who appeared twice on Oprah, says it's 'magnificent...full of rich and authentic detail.' Countess Thun-Hohenstein of Austria says 'I was thrilled...read it in three days.' Mary Ellen Kollar, Director of Social Sciences, Cleveland Public Library, says it's 'a wonderful book.' Three other librarians wote me about how good the book is. And Prince Georg von Starhemberg of Austria says it is 'excellent...a thrilling story...your knowledge of European history is impressive...I enjoyed it very much.'Was this review helpful?
