I have a review copy of this book, and without giving too much away, keep an eye on the announcements box soon!

The publicist contacted me through my blog and asked if I would like a copy to review and of course, I said yes - who can say no to a free book?! I should be finished with it tonight and will post my thoughts/review.

I love the work of Margaret Campbell Barnes. The publisher is Sourcebooks who are really pushing forward in the historical fiction market at the moment.

I hope they re-release more of her books. I own several and really like them.

I was delighted to see My Lady of Cleves at Borders and got my own copy.

I have four of her novels in their original trade 1970s releases. The covers are very cool, all willowy and Klimt-like; and one in its original hardcover about Henry VIII's fool, Will Somers (it's eerily like Margaret George's premise for "Autobiography of Henry VIII, written years later). I really liked Barnes' novel on Isabella, She-Wolf of France, but I haven't read "Brief, Gaudy Hour" or "My Lady of Cleves" yet. I just unearthed them recently while cleaning out book boxes. I was determined to give away some books - too many, need the space, etc.-and ended up giving away exactly five, two of which I'd unwittingly bought extra copies of. The other 10,000 returned to their homes. Sigh.

Sounds somewhat similar to my idea of a bookshelf clear out. Last time I did one, I gave away about 12 books, and all but 2 of them ended up back on my bookshelf! :o

I've just finished reading Brief Gaudy Hour and really enjoyed it so I'm looking forward to My Lady Cleeves. I was lucky enough to be contacted by Sourcebooks about this author. I can't believe I had never even heard of her before. Seems I was really missing out.
