I thought the next in the series would be about Elizabeth of York?

As to the drinking game...I agree with what others said, you'll get more in ya if you take a shot each time she talks about how she's like Joan the Maid, her will is certainly God's will, etc.

Next is Jacquetta Woodville, according to Gregory's site. I think Elizabeth of York is now the fourth novel planned. We may have to establish a chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous for this board if we play a drinking game with the Jacquetta novel, for I foresee no end of Melusine.

I'd like to read Eleanor Fairburn's Roses quartet about Cecily Neville - The Rose in Spring; White Rose, Dark Summer; The Rose at Harvest's End; and Winter's Rose. Since reading Ariadne's postabout The Golden Hive I've been trying to track down some of Fairburn's novels, but they are horrendously expensive second-hand, and I'm now trying to interloan a couple.

Don't know how much shipping would cost, but three of them are on eBay now at fairly reasonable US prices (I think the most expensive was $7.00), and a couple of them are on Amazon. I have all of 'em except for Winter's Rose, which seems quite scarce.

I have collected the 3 of them too. I have not seen Winter's Rose at all.

Thanks, BB- I'll check it out. I've often seen copies of Fairburn's novels selling for $100 or $200. She seems to be to be an author who would be well worth reissuing. Wonder if Sourcebooks would be interested?

Same here and I was fortunate to find a copy of The Golden Hive at a decent price a few months ago.

A bookseller friend owns a copy of Winter's Rose, and I think she told me it took her 20 years to find it. (I've had it on my wishlist with her for about half that time.) She scanned in the cover for me as proof that it really does exist!

The Richard III Society fiction library has a copy, and it's in my lap right now! It's more about Richard III (a saintly Richard III, natch) than about Cecily.
