I left you hanging with my fiction keeper case, didn't I? You've only seen one side of it, so I definitely have to take care of that oversight.
In Part One, I explained that I did some tidying up before I took the photos and as a result, I decided to donate some of the books that had been on there for quite some time. This is a good thing due to the way some of my favorite authors just keep adding to their series. Gotta have room for them, right?
I've deliberately left the file sizes large on each shelf photo so you can manipulate them to see the titles of the books. If you have any trouble deciphering any of them, just ask in the comments. That's why I've numbered the shelves.
Now it's time to shut up and show the shelves!
This shelf is devoted to one author: Cynthia Harrod-Eagles and her Morland Dynasty series. I love this series. It's a multi-generational saga that begins during the time of Richard III. Currently I'm in its World War I phase. The author takes one family living outside the town of York in England generation by generation. She even shows the changes the family makes to their country home over the centuries. She can bring history to life, and-- like real life-- the people in some generations aren't quite as interesting as those in other generations, but what an achievement! Now you can see why I left that big gap on the bottom shelf of the lefthand side of the bookcase in Part One!
Another shelf devoted almost exclusively to one author. I love J.A. Jance's Sheriff Joanna Brady series set in Bisbee, Arizona. Jance grew up in Bisbee, and after reading these books, Denis and I have spent quite a bit of time down in Cochise County.
I doubt this particular shelf is going to be a surprise to any of my longtime readers!
These books by Harnett T. Kane were my mother's. She was fascinated by the plantation houses down South. I learned a lot from reading these books, but they do give a rather romanticized, sanitized view of the Old South. The next time I go through the books in this bookcase, Mr. Kane is going to go even though these books remind me so much of my mother.
A little bit of everything on this shelf, including one of my favorite historical mystery series by Fidelis Morgan.
And another wide-ranging number of books on the shelf. There's a lot of room between the comedy and mystery of Kathleen Taylor and the nature writing of Thoreau!
Well? Did you see any old favorites of yours? Any new-to-you books that you want to read? Inquiring minds would love to know!
