's review

really liked it

I used my first free credit at to download the audiobook of The Lady of the Rivers. I absolutely love the myths of the French royal families who descended from merpeople and the story of Melusina is evident throughout this book. The audiobook was well-performed and I really enjoyed this book overall. It's a different feel from The Tudor series, but once again, Philippa Gregory doesn't disappoint. One of the strangest side effects of reading this book, is that it affected my gardening....the main character, Jacquetta, gardens according to astronomy....then later this year I found out about biodynamic agriculture...suddenly I'm much more concerned what phase the moon is when I'm planting.
