Sorry, somehow missed this! Hallo and welcome to Karen - nice to meet you :) when I joined this board I had read no further than book 7 of the series, but I have also been in love with the series since my childhood, so I do know what you mean. Now I have made it as far as the beginning of the Swiss period and have read a few random Swiss books too, and can confirm that there is plenty to look forward to :)

I'm an even later late-comer than cestina :twisted: and I have no excuse whatsoever!

Hi and welcome to the board, Karen. As others have said, it will be interesting to see if your views change as you read through the series.

Thanks everyone! Sadly, my own curiosity has spoiled a fair bit of the series for me over the last few months but things always seem better when reading them first hand so it will still be interesting to see how things turn out.

Welcome to the board, Karen!! I've been reading the books for years myself and still haven't made it all the way through the Swiss books, so I'm looking forward to that as I chug along on my re-read. You have so much loveliness ahead of you - I really found myself thoroughly enjoying the war years as much as I did the Tyrol books. I think they really showcase EBD's writing at its best.
