Evy | 2 comments I enjoyed both of those books and can also recommend them. The time travelers is an easy read for those wanting something more light. I do 12th century reenacting and found these to be helpful also.

Loretta (lorettalivingstone) | 48 comments I thoroughly enjoyed Time Traveller's Guide - struggled a bit with Urban Tigner Holmes jr, but persevered as it was recommended to me by Sharon Penman. I have ME so don't really have the concentration for the more challenging stuff. I also had a little look at The Practise of the Presence of God the Best Rule of a Holy Life: Brother Lawrence. Being Conversations and Letters of Nicolas Herman of Lorraine (Brother Lawrence). Translated from the French... - Scholar's Choice Edition (bought it a while ago and bot entirely sure this is the correct edituon, sorry) - it is lovely but I found the style of writing a bit challenging for my brain. But then, it was written by a medieval monk, lol. I'm currently reading Medieval English Nunneries: C.1275 to 1535
