One of my favorites is Elizabeth Chadwick as she writes about one of my favorite periods 11th-15th century, which was a time of great turmoil and strife in the UK. Her heroines are always clever, perky courageous, her heroes are always handsome, smart and brave. Just what you want on a miserable rainy day!
I`m currently reading `The Other Boleyn Girl` by Philippa Gregory, which although isn`t a reflection of the actual events, which are still murky and still not completely agreed upon, it is a super read with twists and turns, romance, pain, unrequented love. Spookily enough the film version is on BBC2 this Friday and the BBC is currently running a Tudor season and have adapted the White Queen for the telly - so if that`s your bag - tune in!
