Notes

The Thistle Series by Dianne Price
Dianne Price passed away in August 2013, after a battle with terminal cancer, one week prior to the release date of the first book in her beloved Thistle Series. I never met her, but I feel like I have through the reading of this precious series. I count it a blessing to have polished her final novels.
