In My Mailbox: From Gramma

I just got back from beautiful North Georgia for the funeral of my Gramma. It was so special to see so much of my far-flung family as we celebrated the wonderfully strong and intelligent woman that was my Gramma Frances. 
And as we were going through some of my Gramma's things we found these lovelies. Now I knew my Gramma was a dedicated reader, she's a card carrying bookworm -- in fact, I'm sure that's where my love of books came from -- but we always thought she had pretty refined tastes. Lots of Gene Stratton-Porter and historical fiction. 
Well, in her closet we found a giant pile of these hilarious romance novels from the 40s and 50s with fantastic teasers and my sister and I just knew we'd have to snag a few to take home. 
Which I am posting here for your enjoyment.
 and the fabulous back copy:
Oh. My. I love it!
And can I say that I feel just a tich closer to my Gramma now knowing that she enjoyed her book crack just as much as I do. 
I grabbed a couple others that I think I actually will enjoy - it seems she was a fan of Gothic stories too.
Love you Gramma.

Despite the lurid cover, Dawn's Early Light is a quite good historical novel about the American Revolution. It is the first of the Williamsburg series which is on my lifetime favorites list. Of course, your mileage may vary. :)

Liz -- Seriously? I'm so happy someone recognized it! I thought I had heard of the author before, looks like we got a few winners :)
