The Ravenscar Dynasty Barbara Taylor Bradford

Postby Dani » Thu August 28th, 2008, 8:33 pm

I dont usally read her books as they seem to romancy for my taste. How ever I discovered that her latest book Being Elizabeth is part of a series called The Ravenscar Dyanasty. The whole series is based on the Plantagnets and Tudor Dynasties with a modern twist.
I just wonder if any one elese is going to read Being Elizabeth besides myself.

Sounds interesing - is it a bit in line with Barbara Erskine's style of writing??

I though BTB only wrote romantic family sagas?

this isa family saga series its characters are sort of based on those involved in the War Of the Roses. I have not read Erskins books so I could not give you a good comparison.
