I do love the oldies! When Robi suggested we read this for May I wasn't too thrilled, because I had already read it about 100 years ago. (Meaning, I don't want to waste my time reading books I have already read when there are over 200 just waiting on my Paperwhite alone.) But, I am a good sport and read it anyway.
Surprise! I honestly did not remember any of it at all and I absolutely LOVED it!! While I do love me some historical fiction, this time period (1500s) is not a go to for me. But see .... we just have to expand our boundaries and try new things! Or old things, as the case may be! I don't know that I will reaching for medieval again any time soon, but this story was timeless. It could have just as easily (in general) been set in any time and still been awesome!
