I love the complexity of Spindle's End. And it's nice to find a heroine
with my name! It also has good associations for me, as I first read it
on the bus home to London after getting engaged.

Beauty is another favourite; Rose Daughter I have only read once and I
don't remember it very well, but I haven't felt inspired to re-read it.
Ditto Outlaws of Sherwood and the short stories. I think Deerskin is
wonderful, though harrowing.
