    Hi muinteoir,

    I notice that we seem to be on the same "page" with our
    preferences ;)

    I like Fannie Flagg and LOVE Margaret George (Although I
    didn't like Helen of Troy very much, and I don't really know
    why).

    Here are some additional three suggestions:

    Isabel Allende (my personal favorite)
    Robert Cormier
    Phillippa Gregory (sp?)
