  1. I can recall being slightly obsessed with her early stuff, especially The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse (actually would like to re-read that one just seeing the title again!). But I read Shadow Tag a couple years ago and didn’t like it at all– it was just so ominous!

      1. Yes!! I believe it was her best. Such a finely woven story. But a lot of the characters were from some of her other novels but could be totally a strand alone piece.

Tell me what you're thinking!
