Castles, Customs and Kings, True Tales by English
So my thoughts? This has to be one of the best and most concise book about English history that I have ever had the pleasure to read and it was not boring like some history books can be. Told by the best authors out there, if you are a fan of British history like I am, then you absolutely have to have this book, in whatever format you want. I loved it! I look forward to the next one!
The most memorable moments for me was the essays on the Tudor era.
She has a voice that is easy on the ears.
No, no laughing or crying. It is history which can be pretty dry sometimes, but these essays are written in such a way that the book is totally enjoyable.
