Hello Veronica and welcome - there are lots of readers here as well as writers.

The Other Boleyn Girl is one of my favourites too, and although I haven't liked any of PG's other books as much, I live in hope and am looking forward to the release of The White Queen.

I'm not an author either but I am a keen reader of historical fiction.

Hi Veronica,

Welcome! Though there are authors here I always see this forum as very much a readers' site, for historical fiction addicts. My reading has tailed off dreadfully since I became an author, but I am going to have some much needed time off soon, and after hanging about here I know exactly what books I want to jump into! The breadth and depth of knowledge among the forum members is really extraordinary - joining this has inspired me as a reader, above all. BTW I also liked The Other Boleyn Girl, though haven't liked any of PG's other books much. But you'll get enough suggestions on here to last you many, many years of reading!

Out now, "THE SWAN MAIDEN", the ancient tale of Deirdre, the Irish 'Helen of Troy'

Hi Veronica. I'm glad you have joined the forum and hope you finds lots of new reading material based on all our favorites or not-so-faves. It's all about the reading! And learning and then sharing ideas about any that you do learn! Please enjoy.

How big a town is Katherine. Pretty isolated?
