Another 1 book week for me here -
Received from Paperback Swap - When Christ and His Saints Slept by Sharon Kay Penman.
I have not yet had the chance to read any of Penman's books, but I am working on adding them to my collection.
"Henry I is dead, and even as the bells toll, his barons confer edgily. Bound by oath, they must now deal with the King's only surviving legitimate issue: the handsome, intelligent, and commanding Maude, Henry's daughter and heir. Just as Maude reaches for the crown, her trusted cousin Stephen moves with treacherous speed to set himself up as king. Bound and determined, Maude sets sail for England—and for war. In this novel, Sharon Kay Penman brings to life a dark period in English history, painting a canvas rich in the color and textures of the era."
Anything good in your mailboxes?
