Would you listen to The Daughters of Palatine Hill again? Why?

I found that this historical fiction was very interesting, not many books are written about the daughter of Roman Emperor, daughter of Cleopatra and the wife of a Roman Emperor. The roman world was recreated in this story, from their manners to their politics. One is left reflecting on how we are still very much as they are.

Where does The Stolen Crown rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Enjoyable listen. This story at least allowed this couple to fall in love with each other, thou in historical records they did not. Was an interesting take on the Great Aunt of Henry VIII.

Would you listen to The Last Queen again? Why?

I have listened to many of these historical fictions, one theme that continues to be strong in all of them is that these women have been raped by their husbands. There is no proof of this in any of their lives stories as told in historical books but all these authors assume that because they are strong women a man must have dominated them in such a manor. Due to this new story line, I will no longer listen too or read historical fiction. Authors need to keep with what they know and not assume that all women are victims of rape.

I love the style of story. I was taken back to the Court of the Sun King, with all its grandness.
