Mary Stewart Collection -

I agree! Where is Touch Not the Cat? And why isn't there a collection of her Arthur books?

More than pleasantly surprised -

I am only halfway through my first book (Thornyhold) and would thoroughly recommend books by this author based on the quality of this one book alone. Mary Stewart writes seamlessly, I do hate indulgent descriptive passages that slow a book down, my one major bug bear with Jane Eyre for instance! Mary Stewart uses her skill of perception and a warmth that allows you to bond with her characters and be drawn into their world almost instantly, Reminds me of some of my favourite authors, Daphne Du Maurier, Jane Austen and Catherine Cookson. Absolute bargain, I hesitated to buy a full set from an author I had never heard of but I have no regrets so far!

Good But We Want More! -

Dear Book People, please do us another Mary Stewart set and include our three favourites & *please* can we also have Rose Cottage? Not as well known but I love it.

TBP says: Hi Alison, thank you for the feedback. We have brought your request to the attention of the stock team.

Love Mary Stewart! -

I read these in the 70s when I was 11 or so and they haven't lost their charm - Mary Stewart's writing is evocative and unforgettable - including her Merlin/Arthur trilogy (Crystal Cave) which isn't included here, unfortunately. Still, you've got The Ivy Tree and all the others to enjoy. Wish they'd included Touch Not The Cat - every time I see mosaics or roman ruins I remember this book! Such is the magic that Mary Stewart weaves...

BRILLIANT - but still missing her best titles! -

This is a fantastic collection - I only discovered Mary Stewart as an adult having somehow missed these when I was younger. They're wonderful - totally transporting you to their time and place. These are the perfect combination between two genres - mystery/thriller and romance. HOWEVER - as other reviewers have pointed out, her three most famous titles are missing from this set - Touch Not the Cat, Nine Coaches Waiting, and My Brother Michael. It would be fantastic if the Book People could put together a set of these three titles - the last comment was almost a year ago, which said that given their popularity it was hoped that more would be stocked in the future. They're all available in paperback now, so it would be wonderful if they were sold as a set of three!
