I'd resolved to read only from my TBR pile unless something truly exceptional came along.
Well, surely the newest volume in The Chronicles Of St Mary's has to count?
I pre-ordered it and it's been sitting neglected for nearly two weeks now so I couldn't possibly put it off any further.
I've just started and the magic is back, this time featuring a trip, sorry, assignment, to see, sorry, observe, Henry VIII.
The last volume "And The Rest Is History" was so traumatising that it left me feeling a bit battered. It seems I was not alone. Jodi Taylor says in her introduction that her publisher's asked her to make this one more upbeat. So why when Max, arrived safely in Henry's England says, " It had been a bad year but it was over now. I could look forward to the future," do I not believe her?
