My Brother Michael by Mary Stewart
I read Mary Stewart's Arthurian Saga (The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills, The Last Enchantment, and The Wicked Day) many years ago and loved them. She is one of my friend Kathy Johnson's (of Catching Happiness) favorite authors, so I decided to read My Brother Michael for my classic with a person's name in the title. It is the story of a young woman, Camilla Haven, traveling alone in Greece after the friend who was supposed to join her broke her leg. Shortly after Camilla writes to her friend, "Nothing ever happens to me," she is plunged into an adventure that mingles suspense and romance. It was an enjoyable read and I rate it 3 out of 5.
