Interesting.....this is one of the reasons I love China Bayles so much. You teach me so many things I do not know (can't wait to learn more about the Shakers!), and you include things that I do know about, like cooking and gardening, which makes me feel a part of the book. It's funny, because I do know how to cook and garden....I feel like I could solve the mystery right along with China...as we weed the garden!
Have a good week Susan--enjoy those pecans!

Susan echoing Linda's comment: I finished Hawthorn House last week and loved it, as I do all the others in all the series! I learned some surprising things about hawthorns, which I didn't find out when I did a monograph on hawthorn many years ago for my herb society. Living in "Hawthorn Glen" as we do (a condo community in Michigan) I was interested. The Indians were thought to have used hawthorn thickets to protect their encampments, but I doubt if that's how the hawthorns came to be in our community.

I'm looking for your chocolate chip cookies recipe that was spiced up. Can you help me, I lost the book it was in?

Thank you.
