Laid in is a handwritten note from the author to Milly Lee, in an envelope postmarked on June 30, 1993, saying as follows: "June 30, 1993 Dear Milly, Thank you so much for your kind words about Haveli - I'm so glad you liked it! So far I've only seen one review (in Booklist) & it was good - so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. At the moment I don't plan another sequel - but then I hadn't planned on this one either! Good for you for embarking on a writing career. I hope Nim will be on the market soon - I'll look for it! I'm working on book #3 - Dangerous Skies, which is set on the Chesapeake Bay. I'm really enjoying writing these days. It helps to be settled and happy in other ways! I'll look forward to seeing you at the CMLEA. I'm on my way tomorrow to Pennsylvania, where my slides and photos are in storage. I'm hoping to find enough slides for a new presentation on the grand houses of Tabore, and ther other side of life for Islamic women. See you in November! Suzanne". Gift wrrap and gift card available.
