I noticed that a historical novel won the Booker Award this year so I'm saving a place on my mantel.
(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 Penman? Here Be Dragons was an amazing novel IMO. Great strong female characters that do a lot of things that really break out of the "medieval" stereotype in a believable way.
Yes, I've read Penman. She's covered some interesting territory. I enjoyed her Sunne in Splendour a lot.
