The Daughter Of Time ~ Josephine Tey


Back to a classic

This was one of my high school texts, and I decided to revisit it after reading a comment about it being the classic detective mystery novel, if not "one of the most important books ever written’" (Peter Hitchens 2012).  When I started it, it slowly came back to me ... slow dawning of "I didn't like it then ... and I don't like it now!".  I gave up.

I think a big part of that is that I am just not into English monarchy family trees.  (Maybe it is the Irish in me??).
