I can see it's quite addictive, I'll try to leave a bit of a gap though between books.

Finished Jack Whyte's Eagle's Brood. The series is keeping me hooked but I am going to take a break to read my new Elizabeth Chadwick books! YAHOO!

I finished Marsh King's Daughter last night. One of the better EC novels after her Marshall series. Really enjoyed it!

Kate Morton's Forgotten Garden. This book rocked! I loved it.

Antonia Frasers Charles II

Susan Holloway Scott Duchess-I really like this book although I kept getting confused by the information supplied in Frasers NF and Scott's book. Very well written though!

Read The Lost Summer of Louiss May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees. It was a light, easy read and you can see where the inspiration of Little Women came from. The author makes clear that most of what is portrayed in the book is a "what could have happened" perspective and not based in fact, which is nice. I would recommend it for anyone who loved the Little Women story.

Stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finish The House at Riverton by Kate Morton. Another book by her that blew me away! I think I may have found a new favorite!
