The Red Queen....Here I come!

I just this minute received The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory. I will open it up when I've fed my husband. (He's a logger and on early shift because of the dry woods conditions.) Then I will re-read parts of Alison Weir's The Wars of the Roses which is my favourite book of this period. :D Oh, the joy!

Has this Cleopatra book been mentioned?

Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff. It comes out in November. I know it should be in 2010 thread, but since some previous posts were discussing another Cleopatra book, I thought I'd mention this one. The book will be adapted for a screenplay starring Angelina Jolie. :)

Oops, forgot to even put Ms Chadwick's name in post!

Thank you for moving my post to the proper spot! By the way, I can't wait to read your future tome on Margaret of Anjou! I've read all of your previous novels; they opened my grey cells to more intensive research! You are one of my favourite writers!! :)

I want to know what various members think of her writing, if they don't mind. Philippa Gregory's The Red Queen is...

Reminds me of my all time favourite epic Anya written by Susan Fromberg Schaeffer. I am counting the days un...
