There are over 40, stories on FFN for that fandom. The only reason this book didn’t get 5 stars from me This was a lovely title to read and was thoroughly enjoyable. Hayden Thorne pointed the book out to me and said that there has been an adverse reaction to it. It’s a quick read–too quick for how enjoyable it was.

Enjoy the characters’ blundering about how many human problems could be solved if people were willing to stop, make coffee and discuss things like rational human beings?!

Frost Fair

In fact—for every single historical book to have real life historical figures in it would actually be ludicrous, for it would mean if you were writing about ordinary people living their ordinary lives—say slaving away in the cane fields of America or grubbing a living in the sordid streets of the Potteries—to suddenly introduce a real historical person would be a huge jolt.

A feel-good read for me. So what, he wondered, as he stood outside Frost’s shop on a freezing day, had led his footsteps back here?
