A cousin in England has just sent me "Lady of the Rivers". I started it last night, having finished "The White Queen" last week.
Have you read "The Red Queen". That´s next on my must have list.
I love Phillipa Gregory´s books. they seem to be really well researched.

Welcome Wisechild.....

I am going to admit I have never read a Philippa Gregory book......awaits onslaught lol.....

After putting this thread up I have been reading books from some of the suggestions that I would never think of reading.......perhaps its time for one of hers soon :-)

If you are interested in Tudor history I can recommend her, but she has also written about other historical periods & some modern novels too. They are all equally readable.

Have just finished reading 'The Tainted Tree' by Jacquelynn Luben. Downloaded it when it was a Kindle 'freebie'.

Addie is an American born to an English mother who dies during childbirth. She is raised by her loving, adoptive American parents. An inheritance bequeathed to her brings her to the UK and she starts her genealogical journey to find out her ancestry and whether she has any traceable relatives still living. The story is set in the 1990's.

Genealogy with a touch of romance (and an unmarried mother who was sent to a 'mental hospital')

Now that sounds like my type of book Choccy :-)

Haven't posted on here before - usually help out on other boards - but it was such a good read (imo) I thought it might appeal.

Pregnancy for Men by Mark Woods.

Very enlightening ;-) :-D :-D


Mersey Report 25 Apr 2012 17:09

:-D :-D :-D Piers not long now ??

How is Wifey doing by the way?


PiersFromKent Report 25 Apr 2012 18:40

July 1st was originally given as date due, but that's all changed Mersey. Mrs P is in hospital and rather poorly - better than she was though :-). We've been told that the pregnancy won't be allowed to progress to full term and everything is up in the air at the minute. So...fingers crossed. Thanks for asking Mersey - hope you are well?


Mersey Report 25 Apr 2012 21:09

Sorry to hear that Piers, shes in the right place not that will stop you worrying.......Big hugs to you and Mrs P .....Il be waiting with a big fat cigar and a glass of bubbly with the arrival of Ickle Baby P....... :-) :-) <3

Thanks Mersey :-)


Julia Report 26 Apr 2012 08:05

Oh Dear, young Master Piers, we all feel for you, we really do. You know, there will not be a baby that is born that will have as many 'Nanna's' as this little one.
Open a thread of your own, and give us all a daily up-date.
We are all thinking of yourself, Mrs. P, and baby P.
God Bless you all

Julia.... Just to thank you for your very kind message :-)
Everything is a bit topsy turvy at the moment, but I will post when there's some news :-)


Mersey Report 2 May 2012 08:21

Last night I finish a wonderful book......

The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty, set in the 1920's in America...I wasnt sure about this book but the minute I started reading it I could not put it down, well worth a look...... :-D
