Got My Lord Brother the Lionheart by Molly Costain Haycraft in the mail today
That's the one about Joanna of England, isn't it? Has anyone read Susan Coventry's YA novel about Joanna, called The Queen's Daughter?

Got NF, Victoria's Daughters by Jerrold Packard from PaperbackSwap today, and the Coventry book is waiting for me at the bookstore when I can summon the energy in the heat and humidity to pick it up.
