Short Story and Book Reviews

I just read "Dear Henry: Confessions of the Queens" by Judith Arnopp. It was an interesting spin and insight into what she thought the queens must have thought in their last days. A short read, but worth the time.

Another book that is very well done by Ms. Arnopp is "A Song of Sixpence".  It's the story of Elizabeth of York and Perkin Warbeck. Told in the first person, I found myself as conflicted as Elizabeth and the choices she was forced to make throughout her life. This is truly a book for any Tudorphile.

Ditto, Kim, I love to read anything Tudors, as you well know!

oh, I am going to have a look out for that Warbeck/ Elizabeth of York one. I love the Tudor period but my passion is more for the three Plantagenet brothers, Edward, George and Richard together with their wives and family. OBSESSED!
