I really should read that. I have it here, and have done for ages!

I pre-ordered it, so, I have had it forever! I was just waiting for the right moment, I guess... Like finding out she has another book out next year!

Probably the same place I did! It will depend on how good this book is, of course. Once I get all the names straight I should be good... Her first book was one of my favourite historical fiction books ever, though, so it will be hard to beat that...

A Rose for the Crown (her first book) was one of my favorites too, and maybe because of that, I was expecting too much, and was a bit disappointed with Daughter of York.

I was just confused! I imagine people have the same problem today, but it takes me a few minutes to get names straight because every generation has the same name! That was my first problem. But, I am worried I am going to be disappointed... At least it is not something I have read anything else about, so there is less expectations on that front.
