Hi Antoine, and a belated welcome!

I've not heard of that novel about the Albigensians, although I am aware of their misfortunes. Will have to look out for it, thank you.

Hello Parthian Bow!

Zoe Oldenbourg's novels are superb. She wrote another about the Albigensians called "Cities of the Flesh" as well as two linked novels set in Medieval France called "The World is not Enough" and "The Cornerstone". She also wrote wonderful novel about eh First Crusade called "Heirs of the Kingdom."

She wrote also a heartbreaking history of the Albigensians called "Massacre at Montsegur" as well as "The Crusades", which covers only the first three. She is wonderful at getting inside the medieval mind. She also wrote an excellent biography of Catherine the Great. All well worth tracking down.

[quote=""sweetpotatoboy""]Hi. Welcome Antoine. Good to have you here.

If you're ever in London, there are a couple of historical fiction meetup groups you may be interested in. See my signature.

All the best

Dear Justin:

Many thanks for the advice on the London groups. I'll see if I can make one of the meetings.

Best Wishes: Antoine
