Let me know when you read it, if you like.

In no particular order:

Jane Eyre (Bronte)
Tess of the D'Urbervilles (Hardy)
The Winds of War and War and Remembrance (Wouk)
The Mists of Avalon (Bradley)
The Far Pavillions (Kay)
The Bronze Horseman (Simons)
Jubilee Trail (Bristow)
The Tea Rose (Donnelly)
Gone With the Wind (Mitchell)
Katherine (Seton)
The Black Madonna (Riley)
A Prisoner of Birth (Archer)
The Shell Seekers (Pilcher)
The Other Side of Midnight (Sheldon)

Sorry, I know that is more than 10!
I just finished The Tea Rose and enjoyed it very much, so thanks for that recommendation. (Interesting Jack the Ripper tie-in, btw.)

So now I am going to start The Shell Seekers, and I will let you know! (Yes, it does seem as though we have similar tastes.)

Btw, I notice that many people listed Pillars of the Earth, which is also one of my favorites. Who would have guessed that a novel based around medieval cathedral building would have such appeal!

So glad you enjoyed "The Tea Rose". It is the first of a trilogy, so maybe you would also like the two other books.
