I bought Anne Easter Smith's Queen by Right (HF about Cecily, Duchess of York) today.

Husband brought home an encouragingly large, secret bag from Barnes and Noble today, the contents of which I trust shall be revealed on Mother's Day.

Some new arrivals this week (like I needed any more),

Midnight on Julia Street Ciji Ware
Whispers in the Sand Barbara Erskine
The American Heiress Daisy Goodwin
Dog by Mary Doria Russell (about Doc Holliday)

From the library,
She who hears the Sun by Pamela Jekel (about the Navajo, female based story I believe)

That should keep me busy...
At home with a good book and the cat...
...is the only place I want to be

I've just received Anne Easter Smith's Queen by Rightwhich is about Cecily Neville, Duchess of York. I'm enjoying the increasing plethora of books that are about the nobility of the 15th century! :)

I adore reading Mary Doria Russell -- she writes such smart, thoughtful novels that may not always end as you hope, but she has yet to disappoint me. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on Doc soon.

Bought three Alaska novels that I hope I can get to soon on Mt. TBR:
Alaska by James Michner
Williwaw by Gore Vidal
Heartbroke Bay by Lynn D'Urso
