She wrote amazing characters and if her autobiographical book "A New Kind of Country" is any indication, she was a remarkable woman. I discovered her in my late teens when Readers Digest included her first Mrs. Pollifax novel and I find them great in a different way now that I am an old woman too

Thank you! I'm convinced--and if I go off the radar for a while, you'll know why!


I must admit, I have never read her standalones. I own several of them, but I haven't actually read them. However, I absolutely love Mrs. Pollifax. I've read them each at least twice, and I still get caught up in the action even if I remember exactly what is going on.

Mark aka Carstairs (Yes, that is exactly where I picked up my internet user name. And I've found there are two types of people in this world. Those who see the name and ask "Carstairs?" and those who see it and exclaim "I LOVE Mrs. Pollifax!")

It's time for me to re-read the Mrs Pollifax books! I felt like I was right in the middle of all the action when I read those books.

I discovered Dorothy Gilman when I listened to an audio version of “Caravan.” The narrator, Barbara Rosenblatt, brought it to life. Right after that, I read every book by Dorothy Gilman that I could find. Seeing a movie featuring Mrs. Pollifax was a real treat.

I'm a fan of the Mrs. Pollifax books and now I'll be looking for the audio versions. Thank you for shining a light on this remarkable character and author.

I was sad when I got to the last Mrs. Pollifax. A friend pointed me toward the others, and all have been wonderful! I have just a few more to track down . . . hoping for new books in heaven?
