My compliments for your Instagram entries. I enjoy them very much, and I also learn from them. Keep up the good work!
I just finished re-reading Lymond for the third time at least and found you all subsequently. Nice to know you exist because here, so few people know about Dorothy Dunnett's work. I have a love of Scotland now from my readings, including watching shows like "Shetland." I wish someone would try to translate Lymond to the screen.
I have read L ymond and Niccolo more times than I can remember, I know I am not alone. Spoiled for all other authors.. No-one measures up. Help me.. Need to come meet you all and just talk and tell stories for days and day s!
I came across Lady Dunnett in early 2000, during a search for historical fiction. Having been a fan of Sabatini, Dumas and Bernard Cornwell I came across Phillipa Gregory and Dorothy Dunnett. Gregory left me flat and bored. I then read Queens' Play. I was hooked on this rich and wonderful character called Francis Crawford of Lymond. Since then I have read the Lymond and House of Niccolo twice (On the third reading of Niccolo, and re reading Lymond next.) I have recently introduced Niccolo to another friend and she is hooked. I am happy to have found my tribe. I am also a member of the Pittsburgh Dorothy Dunnett reading Group, and we recently celebrated IDDD 2018 together.
I fell in love with Francis Crawford many years ago, and still re-read the chronicles almost every year. The complexities are fantastic. Then I discovered Niccolo and another world. I have just finished reading King Hereafter, and like everyone else, am quite speechless with admiration for the depth of her characters. This is the one book I have struggled to find .... all the others are on my well loved bookshelves ready for me to pick up and lose myself in.
