I was given or bought some good women's fiction at the Conference: Starting Over, by Sue Moorcroft (interesting original hero and heroine), A Single to Rome by Sarah Duncan (great setting, excellent chick lit), and another one set in Italy which I enjoyed Other People's Secrets by Louise Candlish. This featured some middle-aged characters, with darker family problems.
I've just started an Elizabeth Bowen. How writing styles have changed. She, the author, sits back and gives her opinion of the characters. Also the print was so small in those early paperbacks, wasn't it. Strange to think that books can be almost the same price as birthday cards these days.
