I became intrigued by her life when I read a collective biography of 20 women who had wielded power in various nations, and Eva's story hooked me. You can learn more about Eva Peron and my quest to write about her here.

The Most Happy by Helen R. Davis
"Big thanks to HF Virtual Book Tours for the opportunity to read and review this novel. I'll admit, I'm always skeptical to read "what if" novels about historical figures. What if Anne Boleyn, the doomed second wife of Henry VIII, had provided a so..." Read more of this review »

Cleopatra Unconquered by Helen R. Davis

Anne Boleyn suffers from the black and white syndrome-- either she is portrayed as wicked beyond redemption , or a victim of Henry born centuries too soon, a proto feminist if you will. Though I sympathize a lot with Anne and find her more avant-gard ...more
