Life After Betty

via email:

Dear Betty's,

I was browsing through your old blogs about Georgette Heyer (and enjoying them), when I was reminded of another writer I like very much.. Have you ever heard of Lucilla Andrews? She wrote medical romances too, but (sorry Betty Neels) on a more serious level.

Her books are situated in and after WW 2 and they're great! It took me years, but I've got all her books, except one that is very hard to find. She's a bit of a cult because of some lines another writer stole from one of her books. Google her and you'll see it.

If you stumble across one of her books, buy it and try it!

How are the bitterballen going?

Greetings from Amersfoort,

Betty Debbie here...first of all, thank you Betty Cisca!
  • I've made one attempt at bitterballen (so far).  Epic fail.  Epic. I'll try again soon, but first I have to work up the nerve.
  • Has anyone else read Lucilla Andrews?  I looked up her books on and boy, howdy are they expensive.  I'm going to have to look for her books at my local creepy used bookstore.
