    1. Indeed! My understanding is that reading isn't a high priority on someone else's list.

  15. This I did not know, Sandra. I'm familiar with the "Lady of the Lake" by SWS, but not "Scottish Chiefs" by Jane Porter. I'll have to track it down, because my ancestry is is a roll call of the clans.
