I guess I've been on a British kick lately.
Last night, I talked the DH into watching the Wallis and Edward DVD with me. I enjoyed it (speaking only for myself here). That's not a part of history (British and American) I'm much acquainted with, so it was interesting and educational. (I find the British monarchy a historical curiosity and at the same time ridiculous.)
I also just finished the book, The Sisters Who Would Be Queen. The book was well researched and showed that love, religious strife and ambition played as much a role in the 1500s as they do today. Set among the time prior to and during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, it tells the story of the Grey sisters who also had claims to the throne. I read it like a novel!
What are your favorite British works, either novels or historical pieces?
