This is the first Rita Mae Brown book I have read. I purchased it at a used book sale when the stall was about to close; a friend pointed it out to me. You have to read it -- you'll love it! she enthused. I paid for it before the books were packed away and sent to the Peace Corps as donations. I was so glad she'd seen it, for this book made me laugh and smile and get choked up, too. My daughter kept interrupting me to give her brief rundowns of the chapter I was reading: she saw how involved I was. She goes to a French/Arabic school and does not yet read English fast enough to enjoy this book but she was tremendously interested in the characters and I am certain that she will read it in the next few years when her English improves. I cannot say enough good about this wonderful book. She made the great women of Runnymeade come alive for me and the only thing I did not like was the fact that it ended too soon for me! Not only will I recommend it to my friends here in Africa but I also plan on reading more of her books in the future. Thanks, Rita Mae, for giving us such a memorable book.
