Bringing Up the Bodies
Hilary Mantel's Cromwell continues to engross Us. Thomas Cromwell is staying over at Wolf Hall & appears on the first pages as Henry is engaged in a hunt.
Hawks fly overhead-named for Cromwell's young dead daughters.

Cromwell is mastermind of Anne Boleyn's ascent to the throne.
Now what?
Though the Tudor story is well known-I can not wait to see how it turns out.

reviews & stories abound right now, one from the Daily Beast here,

  1. Loved! Wolf Hall.
    Cannot wait to dive into this one.
    Am saving it for a beach porch later in the summer.

  2. Pamela, You will Love this too. Already, it has grabbed me-I think the WH prepared me for it and it is just as if I finished that yesterday. pgt

  3. WOW! Me, too!

    And that is a great portrait!

  4. Re-reading Wolf Hall in preparation for this one! Can't wait.

  5. I've been foaming at the mouth waiting for this - I almost ordered it from the Amazon UK a couple of weeks ago, but I did the right thing and got it from my local bookseller (Faulkner House Books) today. I'm getting my internet usage out of the way and eating something before diving in. I may have to call in sick tomorrow.

  6. Oh I can't wait to read this one. This topic is always fascinating and the author is such a brilliant writer.

  7. Gaye I am so excited to read this!! Also an amazing portrait!
