For those of you who were anxiously wondering whether there would be any musings today with it being a bank holiday, worry not.

descriptionI'm very pleased that People Magazine have made The Taming of the Queen their Book of the Week. They said that Kateryn Parr's life was 'fascinating' – I think so too. I never realised how much so until I began researching her, which has been a real joy. Read more of this blog post »
