Sadness: Phyllis A. Whitney

Phyllis A. Whitney died on Friday. She was 104 years old.

Whitney's books were a large part of my high school reading life, along with Mary Stewart, Victoria Holt and Daphne DuMaurier.

I just saw the obituary. I too loved her books in high school along with those other authors you mention. But she was 104 years old, can you believe it?

When I was young I raided my older sister's book shelf. Phyllis Whitney was a big part of this collection. I still have a few titles on my bookshelves these days.

Me too, Camille. My Mom and I actually both read a lot of her books when I was in high school and a little bit older. Sad news, but what a life, though!
