My Brother Michael
Print
Mary Stewart, author of many bestselling novels, has been often compared with the Brontë sisters. Her 1960 classic My Brother Michael, with its superb mingling of romance and suspense, its vivid descriptions and overtone of impending disaster, is further evidence that the comparison is richly deserved. nbsp; Perhaps Camilla Haven unintentionally invoked the gods that afternoon in the crowded Athens café when she wrote to a friend, #147;Nothing ever happens to me." But a few hours later, an extraordinary train of events had dispatched Camilla to Delphi, to be in the company of a charming but quietly determined Englishman named Simon Lester. Simon told Camilla he had come to the ancient Greek ruins to #147;appease the shade" of his brother Michael, killed some fourteen years earlier on Parnassus. From a curious letter Michael had written, Simon believed his brother had stumbled upon something of great importance hidden in the craggy reaches of the mountainside. nbsp; And then Simon and Camilla learned that they were not alone in their search . . .

Mary Stewart first published Madam will you talk? in 1956. She has her own style of writing romantic suspense novels. I love all her books, especially Nine coaches waiting, Moonspinners, and My brother Michael. The plots are very intriguing. Many times they concern victims or criminals of The war, by which she is referring to World War II. These books take you back and you have to remember that they were written in the 50’s and 60’s. They are rather brutal for their times complete with throat slashing and use of the b-word, but provide a sense of nostalgia which is very addictive. Staff picks 2008
