Here's a link to Amazon's 3.99 or less Kindle books for the month.  Not a ton of HF, but some good titles here.  Two Bess Crawford mysteries are available, another series I want to read. 

 

Has anyone read The Witch's Daughter by Paula Brackston?

I haven't read that Canham, but I do enjoy her romances when I'm in the right mood. Apparently she's rewritten this one (so I've heard anyway), to make it more PC for today's readers. I hear Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh is today's Kindle Daily deal at $1.99.

That Martin Stephen is actually the last in the series, Vicky. He apparently is back to writing after his stroke, which I find to be great news!

I wanted to put a link in here with more info on the auther but it doesn't work. I'll keep trying. He has a new Gresham book out on Kindle only which is currently 5.99 - title "The Coming of the King".

Jeanne, both FictFact and Fantastic Fiction list that book as the 2nd book in the series!  Hmmm...you know what this means?  I just have to get all of them and work it out myself! LOL

 

(Yes, this is exactly how I get into so much trouble!!)devil

By Joel Gross, Free on Amazon:

The Lives of Rachel is a prequel to The Books of Rachel.

This richly detailed novel of family, of tradition, and of faith, sweeps across a thousand years to chronicle the lives of five women -- each named Rachel and each a rare human spirit.

In every generation of this proud and ancient Jewish family there is only one Rachel, the firstborn daughter. But the name is only part of Rachel's legacy. Each bearer of the name adds, in her own way, to the legend of strength and courage that is her birthright. 

http://www.amazon.com/Lives-Rachel-BOOKS-RACHEL-ebook/dp/B006JFVHK2/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1358268571&sr=1-2
