    I was referred to behind the willows by Jenny Vater and your comment on my comment on her blog (a sentance I never thought I’d type). I completely forgot about the Phillippa Gregory book, of which I have read MANY. The Constant Princess has allowed me to see Katherine of Aragon in a whole new light – I know it is fiction, bit since when was history made by well-behaved women? Without her example, Elizabeth I may not have been quite so kick-butt and then where would we be? I will send more of my “have read” list at a later date. I think it will be rather similar to yours.

    Have a great night!

    Wow, a lot of great books on this list!

  3. Rose says:

    I visit your page each time you post and somehow missed these recommendations. Happy reading time for me!! 😀

  4. Hi! Do you take review requests? I was wondering if you’d like a free copy of my book in exchange for an honest review.
