The first book I read of this author is "Her Father's House". I really enjoyed it. I thought at the time it should be made into a movie. I googled on line to see if she had more books I could get. She was a excellent writer.

I too cherish Mrs. Plain's Books. Have been reading them since I found the Book "Evergreen" in Library in 1990. Yesterday January 23, 2016 in Library I searched the shelf hoping there was another book written by her before her passing in 2010 that I never had bought and read and didn't know about. And was so pleased to find the book "Heartwood" on the Library shelf. Was so sorry to hear of her(my favorite writer) passing back in 2010. Brenda Mallard/Kirkland, Washington

September 11, 2011
I only just learned of Belva Plain's passing moments ago when I read the inscription on her last book, "Heartwood", which I recently picked up at my library. I have read nearly all of her novels and I have enjoyed each and every one of them. I feel inexplicably sad to learn this is her final one. She was a talented writer and I will sorely miss her. May God bless you, Belva, and my sincere condolences to your family. You touched my heart with your work.

Belva was a beloved inspirational author through her ability to weave a heartfelt story with her true to life characters which we could all relate to one way or another. I've followed her for the past three decades. I was so sorry to hear of her passing. I felt like I lost my best friend. I've read all of her novels. You will be so missed. Regrets to her loved ones.

Belva Plain was and is my favorite author. You feel like the people in her books are real, and when they have tragedies or deaths, you cry. She is the most wonderful writer I have ever read. I am so glad she lived such a long, full life.
May 04, 2011
I started reading Belva Plains books thirty years ago. I saved all of her books, I LOVED them, I just finished reading her book Heartwood, I was so surprised to read she died. I loved her books, she gave us a wonderful gift, I was so sad, I will miss her, she shared her gift of heartwarming books, she was a talent that will never be replaced.
May 03, 2011
I just discovered Belva Plain when a stranger at Barnes and Noble recommended her books. I read "Evergreen" and am now hooked. I was so saddened to hear of her death! How wonderful that she has left such beautiful achievements in her writing. She must have been an amazing woman to put so much heart in her work. As a Jew and former New Yorker, I particularly like the variety of Jewish characters she creates. My condolences to her family and friends.

I was so saddened by the passing of one of my favorite authors. Once I had read "Evergreen", of course, I was hooked, and couldn't wait to get to her next novel. My books are my best friends, so I am truly thankful to Belva Plain for giving me so many dear friends over the years. She will be missed in the literary world...and in mine.

I have loved Ms. Plain's books for many, many years, ever since Evergreen. I just learned of her death when I got her most recent book from the library a few days ago. I was telling the librarian what a treat it always is to find a new Belva Plain and that I hoped that she would live forever. Then, I noticed that she died last fall. What a blow to her family and what sadness for her readers, too. Let me offer my condolences to her children and grandchildren. Such loss is hard to bear, but I know that your happy memories will offer comfort in the years to come.

I love her books. I just finished two more from my stack of pretty much all of her novels, and was going to see what was her latest.

I, like thousands of readers, will miss her. Her books weren't just romance, but riveting stories. She must have been a wonderful person, so have so much insight into human personalities.
My condolences to her family. God bless you all.

May God be with each of you. Belva Plain's books are so enjoyable. She was a great storyteller. She will be missed.
October 20, 2010
She was a wonderful story teller. "Tapestry" is still my favorite. Her literary talent was colored by the realistic characters she created. My deepest sympathies to all here family.
October 20, 2010
I also enjoyed all of her books. Evergreen was my first novel. Then came Random Winds, Cresent City, Tapestry etc. I enjoyed all of her novels. They always kept my interest.
October 20, 2010
A wonderful author! I discovered "Evergreen" almost 30 years ago and have collected every book of Belva Plain since then. She brought to life the most amazing characters in every one of her stories. My favorite was her first heroine in "Evergreen." I so loved the character of Anna and the lives of Anna's family that Mrs. Plain shared with her readers. She wove together generations of Anna's family through several books, tying them to historical events and revolutionary times. I have mixed feelings on the upcoming "Evergreen" sequel. I am excited at becoming re-acquainted with old friends but it is coupled with a sadness knowing this will be my last time with them.
You have brought many years of joy to me with your storytelling, Mrs. Plain, and for that I thank you. I will miss you. May God bless you and your family.
October 20, 2010
I so enjoyed all of her books - Evergreen was my first, but not the last. What a blessing to have her share her skills and dedication in our lifetime. My sincere prayers to her family.
October 20, 2010
I've loved and read all of Mrs. Plain's books, since first reading EVERGREEN. Can't wait for the sequel. God Bless you and your family.

Enjoyed reading her books! Rest in peace Mrs Plain.
October 19, 2010
Mrs. Plain has been one of my favorite writers. During difficult times in life, I was able to be drawn into the lives of her very real characters, which was a wonderful distraction. My sincere sympathy to her family.
October 19, 2010
To the family of Belva Plain: After reading Evergreen, I sought out every book authored by Belva I could find, most of which I could not put down. In an era when so much of the literature that is published contains offensive language and sexual habits, Belva did not include these and did not need them. Her stories were beautifully written and I am one avid reader who will miss her. Treasure your memories; she must have been a wonderful person.
October 19, 2010
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
October 19, 2010
Bless you!

To the family of Belva Plain:
Please accept my sincere condolences. May you be comforted by the hope found in God's Word the Bible. It promises that one day the earth will be a place free of pain, mourning and death.

October 19, 2010
Your family does not know me, but I knew and loved the books of Belva Plain. They are still on my shelves. What a contribution she brought to her fans and readers. God bless all of you and the books Belva Plain left behind for all of us to enjoy forever. Thank you, Belva!
