I found this one quite good and very interesting.

I shall certainly read a sequel if Mantel writes one.

She gave me Queen's Folly at about that age, as well, and I love it, too.

The Rosemary Sutcliffe I had was The Armourer's House, which has a Tudor setting. I loved it at 9 or so.

At 12 I adored A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver, which is a novel about Eleanor of Aquitaine, by E.L. Konigsberger.
