Slightly Dangerous
Slightly Dangerous
by Mary Balogh
Edition: Hardcover
34 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful ending to a wonderful series., June 7 2004
This review is from: Slightly Dangerous (Hardcover)
Once more,Mary Balogh uses one of her favourite
metaphors to craft the perfect ending to one of the best series
I've ever read.I refer to the mask,the everyday masks we all
wear.In this case,the mask of the cold,haughty aristocrat,which
was how His Grace of Bewcastle was perceived.That is why Mary's
choice of matching him with Mrs.Derrick.Wulf needed someone who
was his polar oppisite to strip away his perceived mask,to re-
mind him that he was Wulfric Bedwyn.This series will be always
remembered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Mary Balogh great, May 1 2004
This is the fifth book in the wonderful Bedwyn ser-
ies.Mary once more gives us a wonderful heroine in Miss Rachel
York.I also loved the amnesia device,as it really gave Alleyne
a chance to take really good look at himself&who Lord Alleyne
Bedwyn truly is.I also loved the secondary characters.The "lad-
ies" were four of the most genuine whores I ever ment&Mary has
done a good job making such women genuine¬ stereotypes.

Public Worship, Private Faith: Sacred Harp and American Folksong
Public Worship, Private Faith: Sacred Harp and American Folksong
by John Bealle

5.0 out of 5 stars Seven years on,this book is even more relevent, March 11 2004
As a dedicated Sacred Harp singer,I would have to say
that seven years on,Mr.Bealle's book is even more relevent in
the wake of "Cold Mountain".I think that the addition of two
Sacred Harp tunes to the soundtrack revitalised the Sacred Harp
movement.I truly think that one must have a chance to go to a
singing to really experience this wonderfully joyful music.

5.0 out of 5 stars (+5 more stars) T-Bone Burnett has another winner here., Dec 22 2003
This review is from: Cold Mountain (Audio CD)
As a dedicated Sacred Harp singer for 8 years,and
has sung with the Henegar folks including Cassie Franklin at
our Annual All Day Singings in July here&with Cassie's Great
Aunt,Miss Pauline Creel has come to sing at our monthly sings
here in Kalamazoo,Michigan,I will say that the Henegar folks&
Cassie did wonderfully on their cuts.I have never heard 282&47b
done better.As for Jack White,if he usually sings another sort
of music,I think he should do an acoustic album once in a while.
Tim O'Brien&c also did a great job on their cuts.As for the re-
viewer who complained that only Sting should sing his songs,I
think his harmony part with Alison Krauss was great.Alison Krauss also did a fantastic job on her two songs.I would also
like to reiterate what another reviewer said about finding out
first hand about Sacred Harp by going to a singing in their
area.For purchasers of this CD who live in the Southwestern
Michigan area,we have our monthly singings on the third Sunday
of every month&our Annual All Day Sing is on the Third Sunday
in July,that will be the 18th in 2004.If you want to find a
singing in your area directly,go to this web-site [...]
T-Bone Burnett has another winner.Amen Hallelujah

Under The Mistletoe
Under The Mistletoe
by Mary Balogh
Edition: Paperback
41 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely Christmas anthology, Nov. 12 2003
This review is from: Under The Mistletoe (Paperback)
This is a lovely anthology of novellas by the Mistress
of the Christmas novella.Four are some of her classics.I espec-
ially loved "No Room At the Inn" which is one of the best retel-
ling of the First Christmas ever written.This story revolves a-
round a group of Christmas travelers stranded at an inn&their
reactions to the arrival of a young poor couple traveling in
search of work&the imminent birth of their child.The new story
is all about an estranged couple who weren't left alone by the
girl's mother after their arranged marriage.Because of this
they were holding each other at arms length.I really loved this
book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent overview of the beginnings of Egyptology, Oct. 26 2003
This was an excellent overview of the beginnings of
Egyptology&Victorian life and its mores.I especially loved the
hithertofore undiscovered pages from Emerson's journal telling
his side of the story of "Crocodile".

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful,Sacred Woman stuff.Wish I could give it 10 stars., Oct. 1 2003
This review is from: Stumble Into Grace (Audio CD)
This is some her most powerful songwriting ever yet.
This is some very powerful Sacred Woman stuff.When she writes,
she writes well.It is also very spiritual,without being overtly
so&I love music like that.

5.0 out of 5 stars I read&loved this book as a girl, June 10 2003
This book is a wonderful story&it is especially won-
derful to read in this the 50th anniversary of the achievment of
the summit of Mount Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary&Tenzing Norgay.
Momo showed courage as she made her way out of Tibet&down to In-
dia.I also loved the way it introduced another culture&religion.

Slightly Wicked
Slightly Wicked
by Mary Balogh
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: CDN$ 9.49
81 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this series., May 14 2003
Mary has given her readers a wonderful family in the Bed-
wyns.I know that some had their doubts when we were introduced to
them in last summer's "A Summer To Remember",but as we are intro-
duced to the family members one by one,we learn much about them.
Lord Rannulf for instance is at first glance,the rebellious
third son who was meant for the Church,but has refused any of his
Eldest Brother's livings&now has what seems to a rakish rep,but
that is not so as you will find out as you read the book.
