I noticed that Philippa Gregory's novel The Last Rose is coming out in August 2014. I'm looking forward to reading about Margaret Pole....I don't think there is a novel where she is a major character.

[quote=""fljustice""]Sorry I've been MIA for a couple of weeks. I was on vacation in Costa Rica for 10 days where WiFi was iffy. I had a great time horseback riding, hiking in the cloud forest, and zip-lining; then tripped down a long step on a sidewalk and broke my shoulder. [sigh] Back to typing o...

I just finished reading Here Be Dragons by SKP, and have started Falls the Shadow, the sequel. What a love story between Llewellyn and Joanna!
Also finished Killing Kennedy. I remember that day like it was yesterday!
Even though I lived in Canada, the schools were shut down that afternoon.

[quote=""Ludmilla""]My edition is an old 1950s book club edition that belonged to my husband's grandmother. It has torn pages taped together and is falling apart at the spine (I'm guessing it was much loved and re-read by my husband's grandmother). Somewhere I have an old edition of Green Darkness w...

[quote=""Vanessa""]I'm just about to start Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff, a WWII story.[/quote]
I ended up reading all of her WWII and post war books! They are all connected through a character or two! Read The Diplomat's Wife after this one if you like the one you are reading now!

I've been veering away from hf lately. Reread all of Michael Connelly's Lincoln Lawyer novels and am now finishing up a Harry Bosch novel. I have a SKP novel that I want to pick up again at some time.

[quote=""SonjaMarie""]But is there anything new to learn? I read G.J. Meyer's excellent book on them on a few years ago, why should I want to read another bio on them i.e. what is it about hers that I should want to read it? Currently reading Meyer's book on the Borgias (among my many other books). ...
