The sequel, War and Remembrance , wasn't nearly as good, but this one holds up quite well. The Sunbird , by Wilbur Smith - I adored this story of reincarnation, archaeology, lost African civilizations, and tragic love when I was a teenager.
Adventurous and romantic, it also contains a disturbing anti-black subtext that went whisking right over my head when I was kid.

Still worth reading as an homage to late Victorian adventure fiction if you can stomach the sahib-knows-best parts. The Diddakoi , by Rumer Godden - another Rumer Godden novel, this one with a sharper edge as it explores prejudice against a young Roma girl who finds herself living in an English town. The racial politics are probably pretty dated by now, but this was one of the first times I encountered the idea of standing up to bigotry in fiction, and it stayed with me.
I Take Thee, Serenity , by Daisy Newman - quasi-romance about a young woman, Serenity, who decides that she and her fiance should marry in the Quaker tradition. Not great literature, and not my usual choice, but something about this gentle, sweetly told story grabbed me and wouldn't let go. I wasn't happy with Laurence Olivier's performance in the movie, but the book holds up well. The full versions of any of my picks?
