Hello, Miss Evergraceful! Nice to see a friendly little note on my page. "Ransome's Honour," is perhaps, not my most favourite book due to the slow pace.
Yes, I could not resist reading "In The Shadow of the Sun King," which I received for my birthday, even though I have a big library book that needs to be read!:) I am enjoying it thus far; I have not been reading books in that specific time era (before the French Revolution) of late, and I am once again reminded how much I love that time period. It is pretty good, clever plot (which I always look for), a bit romantic in parts, a bit gruesome in parts, yet very suspenseful, and full of action (which I very much love when a books keeps you about your wits;).
I will definitely let you know what I think of it, after I completely read the book. From the reviews I have read, many people say that a few questions are left unanswered because of the author's next book, "The Prisoner of Versailles;" therefore, I just might have to read the complete three books before I let you know what I think. *wink*
Hope you are having a blessed afternoon!
Dear Miss Evergraceful~
I apologize for not telling you this sooner. I finished "The Falcon and the Sparrow," quite some time now, and can admit, that it was rather...romantic. Too gruesomely romantic at times; however, I must admit that the plot was very clever, and something made me not want to put the book down. Overall, I do not recommend it.
I hope you are having a lovely day!
Yes, "The Vanishing Sculptor" is a worthwhile read. I enjoyed it and "The Dragons of the Valley" too. Personally, I liked the first series better, although my sister prefers this series. I am sure you would enjoy it.
You are still ahead of me in "Lysbeth" I am currently in the middle of chapter 13. So far, so good!
Of course, Miss Evergraceful! I have yet to read only about seven more chapters before I am finished with 'The Silent Governess.' I am liking it thus far with a few exceptions.
Yes, I had, just yesterday, purchased a book written by Tyndall called, 'The Falcon and the Sparrow,' which quite interested me, for I do love a good book on English and French history. I plan to read it after Ransome's Honor by Kaye Dacus. My, my, it was so hard for me to choose which books to buy for our Christian bookshop had many a novel on sale for $5 or less!
Hope you are having a blessed day!
A Sister in Christ,
P.S. Do tell me if the other book by Tyndall is any good, for if it is, I look forward to read it.
There were definitely parts that I disliked in Carolyn Meyer's books, and could have been left out, but I liked the historical facts she incorporated in them.
I am reading 'Just Jane' right now, and I think it is a relatively good book. Perhaps, a little boring in some parts, but good enough. I cannot seem to become thoroughly enthralled in it, and whenever I pick it up, I set it down again. It is very sad, for I do so want it to interest me, but it just...does not! I hope her other books are better, for I have bought several of them. The reviews and summaries sound interesting though:)
Hope you are having a lovely day! It is indeed nice to find a new friend!:)
Hello! Thank you for accepting my invitation for becoming friends! I see you have read Wings Like a Dove! I did as well, and really enjoyed it. Did you? Have you read any books by Carolyne Meyer or Nancy Moser?
Hope you are having a lovely day!
Your Sister in Christ,
