Hello everyone,

Glad to find this site and glad to see other historical fiction fans out there. Where I live in Abilene, not many people care for it. Not that I've found anyway.

I like medieval type fiction ala Pillars of the earth and Cathedral of the Sea.

See you around the site!

Not sure if you listen to it, but Garrison Keillors Prarie Home Companion was in your town last week. I liked the things he said about it - never been there but it made me want to perhaps some day (tho I want to visit Austin first)

I would love to hear some of your thoughts about Cathedral of the Sea.

Hello and welcome! Hope you enjoy it here.

I have Cathedral of the Sea on my TBR pile, so I would also be interested in how you enjoyed it.
