  • A must have book if you like mild thrillers.

    I have read all Mary Stewart's novels many times and never tire of them. If you like thrillers with a bit of romance and not too much of the modern trend for sex, and violence in excess, then these books are for you. Her books are all set in different places which she researched in detail but each one is entirely different. Once started these books are almost impossible to put down until finished. She was a very clever writer and the text flows very easily. Having been written in the 1950s onwards, some are a little old fashioned, but nonetheless excellent reads. Madam Will You Talk was her first novel and I found myself looking up all the places she mentions in such detail. The gist of this story is a lady called Charity and her friend Louise go on what they hope will be a restful holiday to Provence, but it turns out to be just the opposite. Happy Reading!

  • Madam will you walk

    I first read this book in my teens about 10 years after it was written and I'm rereading it now in retirement, having read it several times in between. I find it well written and structured and the descriptions of the south of France are evocative and almost make the scenery a character in itself. It has been a part of me falling in love with the area around Avignon and travelling there extensively. It also brings back a sense of life in the period after the war. I love this book.

  • Thoroughly relaxing good read

    I hadn't read a Mary Stewart novel in 40 years but i loved it~a bit dated with a plucky heroine , quaint language and cultural references very much of its time, but the simplicity of the plot and refreshing sheer niceness of the protagonists gave it a charm all of its own. Mary Stewart knew how tell a good story. Great atmosphere...i could feel the heat and hear the sounds of the South of France. Thoroughly relaxing and untaxing good read.

  • Madam, Will You Talk

    A brilliant mystery and some exciting car chases made this a gripping novel.
