[quote=""Ash""]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)[/quote]

I do listen to it and I missed it! With work I couldn't go and then the same with the broadcasts. Abilene isn't bad, lots of historical stuff happened here.

[quote=""diamondlil""]Hello and welcome!

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

I really liked it. I'm not big into Spain's history so I'm not sure how accurate some of it is and there's a few things I'm not sure could have happened as written, but it was a really good book.


[quote=""Vanessa""]Hi Greyjay

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.[/quote]

It's a really good read...I don't want to spoil it for you by giving anything away. Thanks for the welcome! I'm enjoying it so far.

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 Greyjay,
I'm sure your TBR is about to grow!
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

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

Histoire de Guillaume le Mareschal
