Just wanted to post for anyone interested in this book that it seems to also appear under the title "The Lost Letters of Aquitaine", depending on book type (Hardback vs Trade PB vs MMP).  Harper Collins shows as the publisher instead of William Morrow even though they are divisions of each other.

Yeah...I read The Canterbury Papers and absolutely loved it, so thought I'd hit the jackpot when I saw that Judith Koll Healey had a new book out...The Lost Letters of Aquitaine! I ordered the dang thing and then found out it was the same book! Grrrrrrrrr... that drives me nuts when publishers change the titles in different countries...the one I got was published in the UK.

Don't feel like the lone ranger Cheryl! I did the exact same thing! Did you order The Lost Letters of Aquitane from Bookcloseouts? I did, and was so mad when I figured it out. I could have bought a different book!

That's why I posted this. After reading The Canterbury Papers and really enjoyiing it I saw the other title and thought it was a sequel. Then, I read the book description and was so disappointed to see it was the same book. Grrrrr to switching titles!

Yep, I got it from bookcloseouts...my bad for not reading the description more carefully! I really should dig that out and list it, since I've read it already! LOL
