"Ammie" was published, I believe, in 1968, and "Silk" is a decade or so later. Several of the characters from that novel reappear in this one, as does the beautiful and elegant Georgetown town house where the first novel, a ghost story, took place. While "Shattered Silk" doesn't measure up to the novel that precedes it, it is still an enjoyable book.

"Shattered Silk" is a belated sequel to Ammie, Come Home] which I loved. ("Ammie" was published, I believe, in 1968, and "Silk" is a decade or so later.) Several of the characters from that novel reappear in this one, as does the beautiful and elegant Georgetown town house where the first novel, a ghost story, took place.

While "Shattered Silk" doesn't measure up to the novel that precedes it, it is still an enjoyable book. Karen (whose sister Sara figures in "Ammie") is dumped unceremoniously by her stuffed-shirt, pompous professor husband (who plans to marry his 19 year old secretary!). She takes refuge with her aunt and uncle in Georgetown, and house sits for them when they leave on a trip to Borneo, meanwhile working for her rapacious "friend" Julie in local antique store. As Karen learns about the trade of selling vintage clothing, she is also learning not to be a victim or a doormat--probably more interesting than the simultaneous mystery of who it is who keeps breaking into her house, or why it's happening. Aided by the sister of her old flame Mark, she decides to open her own vintage clothing store. Karen's inevitable victory over her horrid husband Jack is very enjoyable, and her new romance, though absolutely predictable, is just as satisfying. Ms. Michaels must have mastered the arts of vintage clothing care; her research shows to advantage.

It's a pleasure to see some of the characters from "Ammie" again. Ms. Michaels must like them too--they, and some of the characters of this book appear in a third book, "Stitches in Time," written in the mid-90s.

This is a sort of sequel to Ms. Michaels' best book "Ammie Come Home". There are tantalizing glimpses of Ammies main characters as well as new ones. It is hard for me to review any of her books as Ms. Michaels is one of my top five favorite authors and, IMO, only has one 'not good' book and even that is head and shoulders above most other books.

Shattered Silk flirts pleasantly with the paranormal, contains a couple of light hearted romances, strong women, delicious vintage clothing and a glimpse back into Georgetown.

If you don't know Ms. Michaels, run don't walk to the library.

I really liked this one. The characters were real and the suspense is just enough to keep you going to where you don't want to put the book down. It's an older title but that's ok - it means there's not any unnecessary soft-porn or bad language - if you're looking for something your teenager could read, this is it.

This was one of the best reads ever! The characters were 3- dimensional, believable and sympathetic. The plot was complicated, interesting and realistic. I loved the humor of Barbara Michaels. The romances were less dramatic; thus, more real.

I smile every time I think back on the story.

One of my favorite authors. Highly recommend. I am starting on the third book in the trilogy right now. I can't wait to finish that one too.

Elizabeth Peters is my favorite author. Her writing is wonderful.

I already knew Karen and Cheryl from a previous book I'd read and I knew about their business dealing with vintage clothing. So the information about the clothing and what had formed their relationship in the previous book was of great interest. The plot was an interesting tangle, one "Barbara Michaels"excels in creating!
A long time fan of Elizabeth Peters, have only recently tried Barbara Michaels' books to become an immediate fan. This one lacks some of the thrill of her ghost stories, but is a great read. One of the interesting facets to her books is the historical information she provides.
