Taylor Caldwell, Jeffrey Archer, Louise Penny, Dennis Lehane, Agatha Christie
Used to love Taylor Caldwell. One of my all time favorite books is Dear and Glorious Physician. It’s actually the book that brought me to Jesus. I felt God’s presence so strongly when I read that book that I started praying to meet the Jesus I felt in that book, and I did. William Murray, Madalyn Murray O’Hair’s son, also said it was the book that brought him to the Lord.
Taylor Caldwell is one of my favorites too. Rare to see someone who likes her books
@Robin my book was No One Hears but Him. I was in high school when I found it on My Grandmother’s bookshelf.
@Katherine, loved that book and The Listener, as well.
I recently found a 1948 copy of Caldwell’s Melissa in an antique store.
@Katherine I just looked up Taylor Caldwell and realized that I read The Listener when I was a kid. how funny….
