Mart Stewart, one of the most popular novelists writing today, was born in Sunderland, County Durham, England. After boarding-school, she recieved a B.A. with first class honors in English Language and Literature from Durham University and went on for her M.A. Later she returned to her own University as a Lecturer in English. She married in 1945. Her husband is Sir Frederick Stewart, who is Chairman of the Geology Department at Edinburgh University, and a Fellow of the Royal Society.Mary Stewart's career as a novelist began in 1954 with the publication of Madam, Will You Talk? Since then she has published fifteen successful novels, including The Last Enchantment, the third book of the magical trilogy about the legendary enchanter Merlin and young Arthur. Her books for young readers, The Little Broomstick (1971) and Ludo and the Star Horse (1974), quickly met with the same success as her other novels. In 1968, she was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts. In 1971, the Scottish Chapter of the International PEN Association awarded her the Frederick Niven prize for the The Crystal Cave.

Mary Stewart is a master of the craft of writing. Believable characters, great plots, interesting locales, all expressed beautifully. I have read all of these previously but not for some time. I would be hard pressed to choose a favorite, but My Brother Michael is so well written and expressed and ancient Delphi is so interesting that it adds another level to the enjoyment. Read all four and realize that no one writes this well today.

It had a big moldy patch on the back bottom cover. I could tell that the moisture had soaked through 50 or 100 pages and the book smelled of mold. Especially with mold, the seller should be very forthright. It is a big heavy book and impossible to hold without handling the smelly moldy cover.

I read all four in a row and all were very entertaining. She can spin a good yarn and if you like the genre, you'll enjoy these. Fast shipping by seller and book in great shape. Very happy purchase.

I grew up with Mary Stewart novels. When I moved from NY to Oklahoma to Albuquerque, my copies of her books disappeared. What a wonderful feeling when I found four of my favorite Mary Stewart titles in one volume! I spent an entire weekend re-reading her works. Now I remember why I love them so much.
