Hi Mary! I'm Sylvia from near Cincinnati, Ohio. I also read The Townhouse first, at age 12. I am 63 now, own all of her books, but still like The Town House best, and Martin Reed remains my favorite character. Hope to see you at Goodreads, too. I have a niece in Apollo, PA.

Hi Mary Y
Welcome ! Many if us are also on a site called Goodreads, just google it and put in Norah Lofts and you will find many threads under the heading Fans of Norah Lofts. I'd put the link in , but this board doesn;t like you to do that

Good to have another Mary on this site! How long have you lived in Indiana, PA? My best friend from fourth and fifth grades moved there in high school (father had joined the faculty of IUP) and, I learned a few months ago, died last October.
But we're talking about Norah Lofts! How did you discover her, and what's your favorite book? I started with Eleanor the Queen when I was thirteen.

I have been a N. Lofts fan for...well, a long time. I am glad to find others out there who still read and appreciate her fiction. 'The Town House' was the first I read...hard to pick a favorite. Hello to all of you from Indiana, Pa.

Yay, lucky you. Do please take photos and post them on the net if you can. Maybe you can see Sun Court at Hadleigh , which was the inspiration for The House at Old Vine

Woooo hoooo ! I'm off to Suffolk in May. Perhaps I'll get to see Bury St. Edmunds at last.
I'll see if I can find Northgate House, where she lived, and take a photograph of it.

No, not me who sent Mary the news letter from the Other Place , though I would have if I'd thought of it!
I'm just about to put some more qu's on the the Neverending Quiz..

Hi, Sylvia! I thought it was you who said on the other site that you were from Wheeling, but maybe I misread the comment. Anyway, for anyone from our Northern Panhandle, I recommend Zane Grey's Betty Zane. It's definitely not a western! (New P) I just posted my poem on you-know-where, but when it appeared, it wasn't formatted quite right, and once I edited it and it looked riyeara ght in the preview I seemed to have trouble reposting it. Now what? (New P) Once that obstacle is cleared, I'll see about doing a book for the map. I made notes inside the covers of quite a few several years ago.

Hi Mary! No, honest, it wasn't me, but I suspect Barbara! Or was this poster the one from Wheeling? I'm originally from Weirton which is just 20 miles N. of Wheeling, but live in Ohio now. No, My sil did not tell us you are now to the shoulder in snow! She lives in Dundalk on Plainfield Rd. I never read any Zane Grey books though I've driven past his museum many times in Zanesville, Ohio.
I think you should put the poem in the miscellaneous section. Have you picked out a NL book for the map study? It's under Layer Wood Map.

Sylvia, I just received an online newsletter from Goodreads. Might you have had anything to do with that? Anyway, I've joined the NL group there, so thank you, whoever arranged it! I think it was you who suggested that I post my poem there, so on which specific site? (New P) I see, too, that you're from Wheeling. Have you read Zane Grey's Wheeling trilogy? And where in Baltimore does your sister-in-law live? She's probably told you that we had ANOTHER blizzard yesterday! The snow is shoulder-high in some places!
