Reader recommendation: The White Company
Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.
Never mind Sherlock Holmes: Try Arthur Conan Doylesâ€™s historical novels. Iâ€™ve just read The White Company again, a gift from my parents when I was 12. Great narrative and characters, serious and droll, and lyrical landscape descriptions, too. Itâ€™s all here and, Reader, our hero gets the girl! Wonderful.
