I didn't think it was the best thing since sliced bread. I was glad that I'd read it because I learned about Germany during WWII and that was something I knew nothing about, but I wasn't riveted to the page. For me it was the sort of book I enjoyed while I was reading it, but I wasn't desperate to go back to it once I'd put it down. The further stage of that, which I managed to avoid was starting to read magazines and cookery books. THAT's when I know I have to put a book down and move on! If TBT is doing that to you, then put it down. Life's too short!

Thanks, Misfit and EC! I'm putting it down and switching to something else!

BTW, I know you two like HR's and the recent one I read by Penelope Williamson, The Passion's of Emma, was really really good! I need to get my butt in gear and review it!

I've got that one going at the gym (which means 30 mins a day during cardio). That Valois family - what a piece of work they are.

The Ladies of Grace Adieu by Susanna Clarke, I think. I have it here to read but my mind might change. I also have Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs and Rachel Caine's newest young adult novel sitting nearby.

The Greatest Knight by Eliz Chadwick. This is my first by her, egged on by many other HF fans. This will not be my last!

To those fans, which books should I go for next by her?

I know nothing about them, I bought the book cause I saw EC had recommended it on the old forum and you can't go wrong there. So what about the Valois family that is a piece of work?
