Christine Trent's "The Queen's Dollmaker"

Hi, y'all...haven't posted in a long time...I just started reading "The Queen's Dollmaker" last night and have read about four chapters. In the prologue, the year is 1765 and the heroine, Claudette, is five years old -- which would have made her born in 1760. In the first chapter, the year is given ...

I've really gotten into PaperbackSwap -- the problem with that is, although I rid myself of some books, I end up with others -- so my inventory hasn't been drastically reduced. Still, I'm at the point where I'm letting books go I know I'll never pick up again -- I've never been a re-reader anyway, a...

You should take a bow -- I think causing a reader to have emotion -- happy or sad -- is a compliment (at least from me, it is!!) I think the shoe would have gotten to me, too.

I finished THE SCARLET LION a few weeks ago -- meant to post before this -- but I have to say that I actually cried at the end. I don't know when I've cried while reading a book -- nothing about the books, I'm just not a reader/crier! But, this one really got to me.

I started THE SCARLET LION and it's seamless -- indeed like one book!

But, you know, sometimes those bigger books are so heavy, they make a lot of noise when they hit the floor (because I tend to fall asleep when I'm reading at night!!). And they also hurt when you drop them on your foot! :D

I know...I was born in the wrong place...at the wrong time...

But I am a southern girl, through and through, so I guess I'll stay put!

I love cold weather but where I am (Georgia), we tend to get chillyrather than cold. But, yesterday and today, it's gotten down to the lower 20s (at night) and lower 40s during the day -- perfect!

I'm just about to finish THE GREATEST KNIGHT -- figured I'd read something else, then come back to THE SCARLET LION (that's my usual MO -- read something historical, then read something not historical -- though I seldom actually break out of the pattern). Anyway, not going to be able to do that this...

I'm in Augusta, GA and have been to both Charleston and Savannah many times (we're about 3 hours away from both). For both, it's always the most fun to stay as close to the older parts of the city as possible -- especially if you are interested in the historic places (and, considering what this foru...
