Press Reviews

'Katharine Stewart's narrative style... is delightfully engaging, her prose almost conversational. The reader, like a house guest, has little chance but to become wholeheartedly involved'

 'Katharine Stewart's memories are, as she says herself a tale of other times, almost a glimpse of legends ... evocative and charming'

'Written with great charm'
