Here's mine, where I reveal my inner 10-year old:
For the lover of Prisoner of Zenda
or the novels of Harold MacGrath, there's Graustark
. Set in one of those obscure Balkan principalities, it has swords, fancy uniforms, disguised identities, dungeons, deceit, revenge, maidenly blushes and a chaste kiss or two. Ah!
I haven't read it in years, but it resides on my devices for that rainy day when nothing else will do. Thanks to crutledge
for the upload.
This!!!!!! I am trying to find books that I would have never thought of otherwise. Even in other languages I can read Spanish and French. I know of the well known classics like Jane Austen but am hoping to expand my library. I will definitely look up the book you mentioned.
