This will most likely be just a collection of my ramblings. I ride and train horses, so there is bound to be a lot of horse stuff. But I also just like to vent and this seems the perfect place.

The Secret Bride

The Secret Bride is an amazing book for all of you historical fiction fanatics. It was written by Diane Haeger (who also wrote The Ruby Ring which is fantastic as well). The main character is Mary Tudor (King Henry VIII's youngest sister). It has drama, love and pain. Just read it- you will like it!

From the Back:

Mary Tudor, the headstrong younger sister of the ruthless King Henry VIII, has always been her brother's favorite- but now she is also an important political bargaining chip. When she is promised to the elderly, ailing King Louis of France, heartbroken Mary accepts her fate, but not before extracting a promise from her brother: When the old king dies, her next marriage shall be solely of her choosing. For Mary has a forbidden passion, and she is determined to forge her own destiny, through her own cunning, courage, and passionate boldness.

The Secret Bride is the triumphant tale of one extraordinary woman who meant to stay true to her heart and live her life just as her royal brother did- by her own rules.

I love historic fiction.

But do I have time to sit with a good book right now? Hey, at least now I know a good book to read should I decide to pick one up. I won a gift certificate for Barnes and Noble at school for my Halloweed get up. Guess I know how to spend it!

Thanks for the recommendation.
