I've just taken part in a horse race in 1830, with a tragic conclusion. And George Stephenson has been trialling his Rocket!

I consider the Gardella books to be my "fun" reading - well, okay, reading is fun, in general, for me, no matter what -- but sometimes I need to take a break from "heavier" novels and just escape into something a bit lighter -- and where I don't have to keep all the "begats" straight!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I am in America, on Fraser's Ridge in the 1700's. (if you haven't read the Fiery Cross yet note spoiler ahead!) Roger and Brianna have decided to stay, their son Jemmy can travel, and Ian came home from the Mohawks. Oooh, I have to run out and get the next book!!!
