Book 62: To Shield The Queen
i am writing here from the living room of some friends. they have the largest tv i have ever seen. we just watched the second episode of lost. it was good, but i feel like romeo when he askes juliet "wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?" when is something going to come together with this? anyhoo...on to my book.
this was a murder mystery that takes place in the court of elizabeth I. ursula blanchard is a lady in waiting to the queen. she comes from a modest background and is now reliant on the kindness of those at court. she is put in charge of amy dudley, the dying wife of the queen's flame. in the sickhouse she discovers murder and plots. it was pretty good. i will read more in this series.
