    •  cfk and I have been reading them (7+ / 0-)

      and I've actually re-read the first three Bess books, because I raced through them so fast upon discovery.

      The story arc is intriguing. There is at least one character who turns up in the Rutledge books and in the Bess books, so I'm waiting to see if/when the story lines cross. Slightly different timeline, though, as the Rutledges ones are each over the course of a month, while the Bess books seem to be spaced about six months apart.

      In both series, the research is very good, and the picture of wartime and postwar England is very sharp, painful even.
