I have a new book to recommend: "The Sepulchre" by Kate Mosse. I can't put it down! It's about love, mystery and historical detail of a mansion and the occult in the 19th century and the 21st century in France. I just love it and highly recommend it. Kate Mosse also wrote "Labyrinth" which was a very good read, as well. Her books tend to have this "time travel" element/connection that makes the story interesting. And I love her attention to detail in architecture and surroundings of the times. I believe "Labyrinth" is now out in paperback.
Jessica is on my case because I haven't been keeping up with my blog as much as I should. I'm sorry. Lots going on, but I'm not feeling much like writing at the moment. I'll catch up with all of you soon.
