I have a couple of posts in the works for here and the other blogs... but my photo editing and writing have gotten a bit sidetracked lately by my need to get to bed early and READ! :p I've been sucked into the world of Sharon Kay Penman and her fantastic novels about medieval England and Wales (and parts of France when they were ruled by Norman lords).
I've been taking notes for a more complete post on her books once I've finished with them, but I just wanted to share this with you: I was invited to write a review of one of them, The Devil's Brood, as a guest post on a blog centred on Henry the Young King (son of Henry II and Aliénor of Aquitaine, crowned King during his father's lifetime but he died before his father so he never reigned). Yay me! :o)
The Devil's Brood covers the period when Henry and Aliénor's sons are all grown up and causing serious problems for their father and each other (rebellion!), and it's the final book in Penman's Angevin trilogy (When Christ and His Saints Slept, Time and Chance, The Devil's Brood).
So here's the link to my review. I hope you enjoy it! And I definitely recommend Sharon's books! Just be wary of reading them when you go to bed... the result is many sleepless nights! :p
