"Ravensridge" was written by Jennifer Hale in 1971. Wow, it has no reviews on Amazon. Unusual. I finished it at the hotel in Chicago...Crestwood...Oak Forest...wherever we were. The ending made me roll my eyes and question the sanity of women in the '70s. But it was a plenty entertaining book. It didn't have any horses in it, though. No cats, either. No dogs. Even the ravens were only in the explanation of why the house was called Ravensridge. Not that including animals in the story would have made it less dime-novel-ish. I mean MSRP $1.50. Yes, a cat would have helped.
