A copy of Gildenford by Valerie Anand has been posted.  This is supposed to be a pretty good book if you are interested in Britain before the Conquest.  I have it but haven't read it yet. It can be a little hard to come by.

I ordered it from you, Emily.  I read The Mephisto Waltz when I was in high school, and really enjoyed it. (It's not historical fiction, though).  

A Rage Against Heaven certainly got a lot of glowing reviews.  What did you think of it?
