I’m killing two birds with one stone today since I was too busy to post my TT yesterday.
“She appeared before her bars and silently observed the Yankee private deliver supper rations to an unidentified prisoner at the end of the corridor. Originally, Isabelle thought she and Becky lived there in solitude and her cheeks grew hot, wondering if the prisoner had heard the private things she’d told Becky.

Now, onto Wishlist Wednesday. How come I keep forgetting to do this? My wishlist is massive!
Lies and Lust in the Tudor Court tells the story of the teenager, Katheryn Howard, and her marriage to the aging, ill-tempered Henry VIII.To some she is considered a harlot and a greedy girl from an even greedier family. To others she is a victim, in love with another man and forced to marry the King. In truth she was a mercurial, strong-willed, sexually appealing woman trapped by the dangerous politics of the Tudor court and her barren womb. Her final words when she knelt at the executioner’s block were, “I die the Queen of England, but I would have rather died the wife of Thomas Culpeper.”
Not as well known as her famous cousin, Anne Boleyn, Katheryn’s story is every bit as exciting and dangerous. It is a piece of history that has the power to stimulate our imagination five hundred years later.
