Has anyone one read one of her books? I met the author at our library yesterday. She was there for a reading and book signing. Loved her! Loved how adamant she seems about getting the facts correct. She's been living in the U.S. for forty years but had such a delightful accent. I wish she could read the entire book to me :-)

  I confess with many hundreds of books on my TBR shelf I still bought all 3 of her books. We do have to support our authors and libraries don't we? Especially those that make a point to come and meet us in person. These copies I had signed so I'm not sure if I'll be posting them.

We actually read this one as the January book of the month selection.  I really liked it.  I have Daughter of York on my TBR pile and her new one on my WL.

I also really liked it when we read it for BOM.  I would like to read her other two books, but don't have them yet.

What a blessing to have met her!

I have her books on Mt. TBR. 

And I will remind you of the rule that book purchases made at an author appearance may be made without guilt, no matter the size on one's TBR pile.  That's my rule, at least!

Yes, I participated in the Jan BoM reading---ITA, it is always a pleasure to find an author who cares about real history--I like a lot of actual history with my fiction.
