Not exactly a review
Conspirata - Robert Harris
Imperium - Robert Harris

I loved listening to these two books! Therefore, I am incredibly disappointed to see that Hoopla does not have the third in audio. I will definitely have to check other sources - and get them all in paper format to read again. Great stuff!

The End of an Era

November 17, 1558, marks the end of an era in Tudor history. With the deaths of Queen Mary I and Cardinal Reginald Pole on the same day, their efforts at counter-reformation in England came to a screeching halt and the Elizabethan age began.

 

Today, I am at EHFA with an article on my favorite maligned queen and her intriguing cousin.
