I saw an ad for this one and thought I‘d see what it was about, now I‘m hooked at about halfway thru. I can‘t get enough of medieval history. This one isn‘t super academic-sounding. In fact, there is some sarcastic humor tossed in which would make it a good starting place for those without a big medieval history background. It‘s fun, but doesn‘t spend a lot of time on any one part of the history. Enjoying it!

After an exhausting Halloween (pushing kiddo-as-Hermione around in her wheelchair was a serious workout!), November started in its own kind of flurry. I started three books today - tagged for #Roll100, and Jane Austen‘s Letters and The Heiress for #PemberLittens - and had to go to the pharmacy for kiddo‘s oral antibiotics, because she finishes the IV stuff tonight and gets her line removed tomorrow!

batsy Much ❤️ to you and the kiddo. Yay for being able to progress to the oral antibiotics. 1mo
Ruthiella Glad your daughter is on the mend. Kudos to you for trick or treating with her! 👍 1mo

Finished Medieval Medicine this weekend while traveling to and from a conference. The review on the front nails it, truly 'readable and fascinating.'

This book follows the adventures of a flawed, gutsy, likable heroine in the 1300s. It was funny, sad, heartwrenching. I loved it. All 560 pages.

At first I thought this book was a bit of rehash of the earlier books as far as the obvious bad guy went (he didn't have a moustache to twirl but I'm sure he would have if he'd thought of it) but then it started going off it some interestingly different directions. And I'm glad to see Brother Simon is coming out of his shell a bit - he's got a wicked sense of humour.
