Another good one about C Parr is The Queen's Grace by Jan Westcott (1950s?). I think it's out of print now, but check a library. But "light, amusing"? Not quite a good description of CP's life!

Westcott has other good ones, by the way. Try The Tower and the Dream, about Elizabeth of Shrewsbury (a sort-of rival of QE I). I own that one and will loan it to you if you'd like to read it!


loved "smilla" in book format, and have enjoyed all of the slightly spooky but intriguing books by pter hoeg. he is worth checking out if you haven't alredy. of course, one of the best book to movie book reads inthis genre is "the name of the rose", but of course, would guess you've already read that one.


Just recieved your swap package. I could die. What lovely gifts! Thank you so much- I'm still swooning over the apron! It's amazing! Will aslo be adding you to my Reader today!


Margaret George wrote two great historical novels, one "The Autobiography of Henry the VIII" and "Mary Queen of Scotland and The Isles". Easy and fascinating reads. I too love the Tudor England era.
Thanks for the new reveiws! Just finished the second Coetzee book "In The Heart of the Country" and onto "Waiting For The Barbarians". Jack is now following suit!
