I would suggest you try the Hero and the Crown, because it doesn't matter 
about the order you read that pair of books in, really. She is worth the 
effort. I know a couple of people don't like her sentence structure, but 
goodness, she is literate, unlike some we could name if we were not taking 
the high road. Spindle's End is just a lovely book, with a beautiful 
portrayal of female friendship.
