Hi there, 'woolnwords',

Thanks for your very prompt reply.

Yes, reading a Lincoln book is uplifting,
especially in a dark hour. And you can likewise
rely upon his sense of decency, what you called his
"goodness". Lincoln's heroes and heroines don't have
things easy, but their decency, together with
their grit and determination, pull them through. In
the end the devious, exploitative characters lose
out. Most heartening.

Lincoln's regional setting, his much loved Cape Cod,
is also well handled. As also are his 'characters',
including *(
So, 'woolnwords', of the 9 Joe Lincoln titles you have listed in your library here, which are your favourites?

And what do you most like about his writing?
