Welcome, Holly. We love having historians around to help us keep our facts straight - hope you'll be joining a lot of the discussions. I read Mistress of the Revolution recently, really enjoyed it, and reviewed it at http://www.HistoricalNovels.info/Mistre ... ution.html.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite 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.

Welcome Holly,
I'm sure you'll enjoy the forum!
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'
