Historical. I have to say I've loved the change in genre. I noticed that a historical novel won the Booker Award this year so I'm saving a place on my mantel. :roll: (No, not really. I'm not literary, but it's an amusing thought) Ah great to hear! I love historical! Have you ever read Sharon Kay Pe...
