Patricia | 138 comments I've read several of her books &enjoyed them though it's been awhile. I have The Outcast Dove on my shelf, so I will probably read that.

Shomeret | 147 comments I love Sharan Newman's medieval series, but it's complete and I've read them all.


message 4: by Sandy (new)

Sandy | 1137 comments I'm hoping to get the first book of her medieval series from the library this week. Its been on my TBR list for awhile.

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 694 comments Another new-to-me series to try! None of my local libraries have any of the books. One of them has the Guinevere book but I'm not really keen on reading that one. Luckily, I tracked down a copy of Death Comes As Epiphany at my daughter's school so I will be asking her to get it for me. It's the least she can do after all the hours of labor I endured to bring her into the world. :-)

It is the very least she could do, lol!

happy (happyone) | 147 comments I've read them all also - I really wish she would write more of them, but it seems she has moved on to other things.


message 8: by Portia (new)

Portia | 32 comments I've had a copy of Death Comes As Epiphany on my shelf for ages. Time to blow off the dust and begin reading ;-)


message 9: by Sandy (new)

Sandy | 1137 comments I'm a third of the way into Death Comes As Epiphany and enjoying it tremendously.


message 10: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 694 comments I just finished Death Comes As Epiphany and I really ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would. I liked the main characters and plan to continue on with the series.


message 11: by Sandy (new)

Sandy | 1137 comments I've finished Death Comes As Epiphany and, though I enjoyed it over all, I thought the ending was melodramatic. I expect I will continue with the series.


message 12: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 694 comments I will agree with you on that, Sandy. The switch in that character was rather extreme.


message 13: by Miss M (new)

Miss M | 13 comments I had read the first two in the series and didn't remember much other than I liked them, so when some of the ebooks went on sale a while back I picked up a handful but they've been lingering on the TBR stacks. Thanks to the monthly feature for reminding me about Ms. Newman. : )
I've just finished The Wandering Arm (#3). TBH, I thought the plot (stolen relics) meandered a lot and really was a little...dull...but I did enjoy the characters very much, especially the young couple, Catherine and Edgar. I also liked the historic background with the very specific details of Jewish life in the twelfth century and the particular accomodations they had to make to be tolerated as a community, trying to stay off the radar and not provoke the ire of their Christian neighbors. Very interesting.
