The Queen’s Fool by Philippa Gregory

Seem to be consuming works of historical fiction and am not sure whether it’s because they have touches of cheesy romances or because I’m interested in the “real” lives of English royalty. Gregory has a distinguished educational pedigree as far as British history goes, but the writing is easy on the brain. This particular novel is from a commoner’s perspective – Jewish Hannah, who, with her father, has fled the Inquisition in Spain to set up a book selling and printing business in London. I think if I hadn’t read “The Virgin Queen” first, many of the same “royal” characters, I would be enjoying this one more.
