1 thought on “Anne Perry”

  1. I had no idea about Perry’s troubled past during her youth. It makes sense though since her books, the Christmas ones in particular, always have a redemptive aspect. I recommend the Christmas stories in particular if you’re interested in the minor characters in her other novels. Fun reads during this time of year.
