Cynthia said it best. Was particularly unhappy with the ending. It was nothing more that a set-up for the next book with critical loose ends not explained. Color me gone...

1929 by M.L. Gardner
"Wow, it was bad. I'm amazed at the glowing reviews here and wonder what other books fall into "historical fiction" for some of these reviewers. First off, the book is written at a grade school reading level that happens to have adult sexual conten..." Read more of this review »

"Happy New Year! This morning was so glorious that I couldn’t resist a walk across Regent’s Park. It was finger-tinglingly cold, but incredibly beautiful. Those bare branches! The long wintry shadows! The low sun turning the sky from gold to blue! ..." Read more of this blog post »

The Millionaire and the Bard by Andrea Mays

"I hope all of you had an enjoyable New Year’s Eve and I really, really hope that 2017 will be a better year for all of us. December 30th was a dreadful day for the House of York, for on this date in 1460, the Duke of York rashly ventured out from..." Read more of this blog post »

Tom Wolfe
“You never realize how much of your background is sewn into the lining of your clothes.”
Tom Wolfe

Anne Girard
“It was she who had led him to find himself. Picasso had risen to the challenge God had placed before him without even realizing it. In spite of his fears, in the face of her lengthy illness, and now her impending death, he had not abandoned her. Her steadfast love had helped him to become a noble man, and to be there for her in a way he had not been able to be for Conchita.”
Anne Girard, Madame Picasso

W.C. Fields
“It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.”

Micheal Maxwell
“Home: a place you’re from, not a place you live.”

“Your enemies have neither the proof nor the backbone to stand against you, but say something often enough in vulnerable ears and incredulity turns to belief.”
Elizabeth Chadwick, The Greatest Knight
