The Last Day of October

It has been raining and raining here.
I finished reading The Man in the Queue
I wish she had written more.
This has to be one of the best mystery books of 1929...
What was it about this time period that produced so many mysteries
that are well done and well written?
Today I see the apartment that I like more than the others.
I have seen so many I do not want.
I am praying for God's mercy.
I have never hunted so long for an apartment without finding one.
Of course I have never had more than a week before to find one,
so that may be part of it as well.
Today is good; God is in it.
Vespers tonight.
I need to decide what soup to make for next week's eating.
The rain is not said to stop until Wednesday and to resume again
May we strive to think of God through the plodding days of rain.

I have never read any Jospehine Tey books.
I will give them a read, thanks for the suggestion !

Your welcome! They are really great and suprisingly distinct from each other... I think you would like them!

I read Tey's book about Richard III and loved it. "Man in the Queue" is actually on its way to my house via PaperbackSwap.

Yes, Daugther of Time is really great... this book you are getting is different but also very good... You'll have to tell me if you liked it!
