My poor brain is completely "fried" - overworked and just plain old tired, so I have decided to give the non-fiction a bit of a miss for a while and take up some historical fiction. Mind you, every book I selected in over 400 pages!!
So, on the agenda for the next month or so - depending upon the state on my mental faculties, are the following books, in no particular order:
- "The Winter Mantle" by Elizabeth Chadwick ( - Norman England and the revolt of Earl Waltheof of Northumbria)
- "The Tigress and the Rose" byRichard Cameron Low (- Eleanor of Aquitaine and Fair Rosamund Clifford)
- "Innocent Traitor" by Alison Weir (- Lady Jane Grey) - I am slightly hesitant as Weir is not a particluar favourite of mine, but others think this foray into fiction is okay.
- "The Greatest Knight" by Elizabeth Chadwick (- William Marshall)
- "The Scarlet Lion" by Elizabeth Chadwick (- William Marshall, again)
- "Bretheren" by Robyn Young (- Knights Templar)
I wonder if I should have tackled those books sitting, covered in dust, on my own bookcase first???
