The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory

This last month, we all agreed at the morning book club at the Southwest Branch that our December read wasn't as fulfilling as some of our other selections have been (sorrry The Beach House!). The next day I went ahead and hoped that our January selection would be better. And so far it absolutely is. This is my first Philippa Gregory book and it doesn't matter if I know history, because I am hoping in vain for Mary, Queen of Scots, to pull through in the The Other Queen. In fact, I can already tell this is one of those books that makes me look up everything I can about it, starting with Wikipedia and on through what type of embroidery Mary stitched. Come check it out with us at 11 a.m. on January 13 at the Southwest Branch.
