Just galloped over to meet my mobile library in the hope of picking up my copy, but as it's half term the minibus was crammed full of jigsaws, toys and kiddies books.
No luck with my book, unfortunately. However, my ever helpful librarian had stashed "Virgin" by the same author under the counter for me. It opens with the death of Henry VIII, and Elizabeth, Anne's daughter, is thirteen years old. I'm hoping that later in the book there will be some flashbacks of her thoughts about her mother.
There are six copies of "Secret Diary" in a 30 mile radius that he could draw from and all have been constantly on loan for weeks with a backlog of reservations too. When I asked why it was so popular he smirked that it has the reputaion of being a bit of a bodice-ripper.
I wondered what had kept you all so quiet!!
