I haven't read the book but love the pictures! I want to start reading this series from the beginning, though, which I haven't done as yet, either.

Thank you Susan. You must have taken a lot of time and trouble over these and it's very worth it. Have you e-mailed Sharon to tell her? I'm sure she'd be thrilled.

Great job Susan, we can feel the historical atmosphere with those nice pictures, thanks a lot!! I wonder if we could find pictures of these castles at the time they were built, any hints?

I have some of them in various guidebooks and reference works, but they aren't copy-righted to me, so it might be a bit awkward putting them online. :(
