I really blew it!

The eldest daughter of one of our home school families is a fan of books that I have always loved, all things British, Greek and Roman mythology, fantasy literature...

Having taught high school literature, I shared with her some of my favorite books.  These were books I remembered reading at her age, but only had a vague notion of what the books were about.  The Glory and the Lightning by Taylor Caldwell was in the bunch.  I'm reading it again now, and I can't believe how sexual it is.  I had completely forgotten that part.

When I see her at church tomorrow I have to apologize.   I will have to suggest one of these other selections.  I know Taylor Caldwell is a bit out of fashion, but her novels are quite good.
