I have been looking for a copy of 'The Wind...' for many years having borrowed it from the library 40 years ago. So it was a thrill to see it on Kindle at a reasonable price. It is an interesting, if too short, read with Lady Stewart's trademark themes in place (stunning location, danger, resourceful heroine and Darcy like hero etc ) and for aficionados even a character from another book is name-checked! The Lost one is something different to the usual - definitely a short story. It was amazing to read something new by this author. There was menace and thrills but also laugh out loud comedy! Thank you for adding these books to the Kindle library - any more short stories out there we have never heard of?

I’ve read all Mary Stewart romantic / thriller novels . So great to find another . She’s was an amazing writer taking you right into her stories, with such fabulous descriptions, you can see it all so clearly. Although 2 stories in one and short, well worth a read
charming, interesting, sketchy little outline of what could have become a major novel, with much the same characters as her "real" novels...an independent young working woman (who is always annoyingly beautiful), a stalwart hero, best of british manhood, a scattering of elder mentors, aunts, employers, family friends, a dramatic plot, with startling, sudden horrors, a smart dialogue, and a satisfying happy end...here, in some 80 pages, we see the same formula...good show!

Mary Stewart never fails to entertain her readers. Her writing is beautiful in its description of landscape and nature and heroines always resourceful and more than capable of looking after themselves. I read all of her novels when in my twenties and am enjoying them just as much the second time around.
