Cleopatra by Joyce Tyldesley, whose last name (for me anyway) is a serious mouthful. It's a brand new biography, and I'm finding it quite fascinating, especially since I just finished a book on Cleopatra's daughter!

I think we're going to have to start a Time and Chance thread!

I'm reading The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon and Duchess by Susan Scott Holloway. Loving both of them!

I'm halfway through Christine Blevins' Midwife of the Blue Ridge... it's a new novel set in colonial America. I'll be interviewing her on my blog shortly.

Which state is the setting for this book? Virginia?

I believe Virginia, or at least it was part of Virginia back then. That's one question I plan on asking her, actually, because I'm not sure of the exact locale today.

Thanks! IIRC, West Virginia was part of Virginia. I just looked up Blue Ridge Mountains on Wikipedia and the Blue Ridge Mountains are in the following states: Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, South Carolina.

I'm still reading The Passions of Emma by Penelope Williamson. It's a HR and it's very very good. I'm 2/3 of the way through and so far there has been no sex whatsoever.
