Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
Historical fiction, once again of the haves and the have nots, and the excuses for the treatment of the peoples that they run rough shod over . . . interesting enough . . . but a little long in the tooth for me . . . the struggles between Welsh and Angles . . . not enough umph for me to continue the series . . .
