Francis not only absorbed and probably understood more, he craved more knowledge than the other two would have had any interest in, so continued to collect and devour all the sources of knowledge he and Sybilla could find. Very nicely put, pagali--it makes perfect sense. So glad to see you and your...

Thank you for your comments. This book is a second read for me. Audio, I can see why the scenes with the investigation cast some distaste on the story. The first time I read this book, it had been a book club suggestion for our faculty book club from a teacher where I work. Anyway, another colleague...

:thinking: I got the impression that Richard was not as bookish as his brother. He was more inclined to taking care of the estate, the animal husbandry. However, I believe Sybilla saw to it that they were educated in the finest schools. There isn't any evidence, to my knowledge, that Richard or Gide...

DLT, I'm delighted to know that you are enjoying Erasmus. I'm sure that there are plenty of examples of how Dorothy incorporated some of these princely behaviors into our hero. There are plenty to cite in the first four books of TLC. Interesting observation on modern day rulers. Many of them have al...

You're welcome! :D I don't blame you about Audible. Wha...

The Discussion for A Fall of Marigolds is now open. My take on this book: I found this a very moving story, one that despite, the sadness and the kleenex at hand, was a book about hope and mistaken perceptions and that one must continue to love. I was glad that both women discovered what was truly g...

This book is included in Amazon's free classics so you can get a free copy for your kindle. Thanks for the head's up. If you enjoy listening to books (or reading and listening at the same time), LibriVox is a great audio app. There is a free version and another version which was 1.99 when I purchas...

Oh yes. I had my kleenex out and I tell you, it's pretty challenging to get me to cry over a work of fiction, but this did hit home because of the historical events. It's a beautiful story and one to be remembered. I had to recommend it here.
I'm looking forward to everyone's comments.
