Moon-Spinners
Moon-Spinners | Mary Stewart
Nicola Ferris, impetuous, attractive, and on holiday from the British Embassy in Athens, arrives in Crete a day ahead of schedule and discovers adventure and romance. Blithely savoring the wild beauty of the countryside, she stumbles across an assured young Englishman hiding out in the hills who is less than pleased to have been found. Before long, events begin to spiral in an alarmingly perilous fashion, leading to a stunning climax among the fishing boats of Agios Georgios Bay. With her keen delineation of character, Mary Stewart once again casts an enviable spell of suspense on readers.

1.It will be better to ask persons how they see me.But I'm here to try help others. 2.I do it every time in everything I do.A couple of minutes by myself, in silence and I can recover. 3. "Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side where she/he never shows to anybody" Mark Twain. I believe in this but I see it in a good way, know our dark side to change it for a positive one, a way to challenge our fears.Thanks for tagging me @kamoorephoto

kamoorephoto I do like that Mark Twain quote... 7mo

@Meaw_catlady

The new moon in Cancer, the week of my birthday (July 6th), is making this time especially hard. Moving into shelter, dog being sick, questioning life, that all is tricky!

1 It may seem to be a wonderful thing but it also has made periods of my life incredibly challenging, just FEELING so much. I‘ve often wished I didn‘t.
2 This has become so hard. It‘s been a long time since I nurtured myself and found sacred space.

A fun story set in the Greek islands. Nicola is heading to a secluded hotel for her vacation and meets a young man, Mark, who was mysteriously injured and hiding in a shepherds hut. His younger brother is missing and she must help Mark find his brother while figuring out who to trust and how to stay safe.

Mystery on the island of Crete! Read this today, then watched the 1964 film. Love Stewart's writing style. But the movie was not as impressive; however it was filmed on location

CoffeeK8 @Alfoster I believe they also made a movie about it too. 13mo
CoffeeK8 @writerlibrarian seriously! It‘s beautiful 13mo
CoffeeK8 @Blaire you might enjoy it, it‘s a post WWII romantic suspense by a British writer. Sort of a more modern Georgette Heyer writing a suspense novel. 13mo
Alfoster Yes, I remember the movie too as being so beautiful! 13mo
Eggs Wasn't this a Disney film in the 1960s with Hayley Mills?? 13mo
CoffeeK8 @Eggs yes, it was based on the book. I remember watching it, but I can‘t remember how similar they are as far as plot. 13mo
CoffeeK8 @Alfoster yes, such a beautiful movie 13mo
Eggs @CoffeeK8 I'm so curious I must read it now 😍 13mo
Crazeedi Mary Stewart was my favorite as a teenager, ❤❤❤ 13mo
kspenmoll Loved that book as teen.,where are you finding these beautiful covers?! 13mo
CoffeeK8 @kspenmoll they are the kindle version covers. They are so lovely 13mo

Everytime I read her novels, I am fascinated by her descriptive writing that I wished I could visit those places.

My first for the #ThrowbackReadathon! I loved Mary Stewart books when I was a kid, and this was one of my favorites. Mystery and romance in the Greek Isles! Imagine my delight when I discovered Disney made it into a movie with Hayley Mills! That‘s one of my go-to nostalgia movies! @monalyisha @Clwojick

Weekend plans: Hoping to finish up some current reads I started weeks (in some cases months) ago.

tapgurl Mary Stewart was a dnf for me in high school ('79). Should u try again? 2y
tapgurl P.S. love your baby! Try not to disturb too much by turning the pages! 2y
erista @tapgurl I would definitely try again! The few I've read by her were well written, fast paced and fun. I'm enjoying The Moonspinners and also really liked Nine Coaches Waiting. 2y
erista @tapgurl Thanks! Reading around him is challenging but worth the trouble. 2y

I remember when Disney made a movie based on this book. Haley Mills was the star.

Very much a product of its time, an intrepid Nicola stumbles across a mystery just can't resist getting involved. Fans of Agatha Christie's stand alones will enjoy this. Also, it wasn't written as YA, but I'm consider it YA.

Excited to read The Moon-Spinners! I had no idea this was a book. It was one of my favorite movies as a kid, watching old movies on TV's The Wonderful World of Disney. Oh how I wanted to be Hayley Mills!

Dragon Very nice photo . I've seen Hailey Mills movies 🎥 but I may have missed this one 😭 I have read the 📚 3y
