The Midwife of Hope River is not bad at all. Well worth the read IMO.

For never will cowards fall down there.'

I was tempted by 1066: What Fates Impose by G.K. Holloway because it's been reduced to $1.50 and I'm interested in this time period but there's not enough feedback to know if it's any good!

The Fatal Crown by Ellen Jones is $1.99. Probably not recommended for historical purists.

This Time Tomorrow by Rupert Colley is a a freebie with interesting possibilities.

Shadow of the King: Book Three of the Pendragon's Banner Trilogy by Helen Hollick - $2.99
Hugh and Bess by Susan Higginbotham - $2.99
Summerset Abbey by T. J. Brown - $2.99

I've got Summerset Abbey on my watchlist so I was going to snatch it up while it's on sale but it's gotten rather mediocre reviews on GR so now I'm not sure.

Another interesting looking freebie:

Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor. Apparently it's a time travel novel covering lots of different historical periods. New author and I've no idea if it's any good (some great reviews on Amazon but I never know when to trust them) but maybe worth a try if it's free.
