I confess its been a while since I last read it, but doesn't Cordelia
make a reasonable showing in Brothers in Arms. I remember a few scenes
when Mark gets very startled by her fresh approach to parenting :) It
could be Mirror Dance.......
Damien makes a good point, I came to the series *knowing* it was about
Miles to start off with so I read those, almost as prequels, ie setting
the world, and providing a current basis for the story to grow on.
All things being equal, given the rather turbulent times they were in, I
think it may have been a bit.....tiring...to have read too many more
stories, the two we had were wrenching enough in their own right!
Those two books are however, in my personal opinion, the best love story
ever written :)
