I’m over on Unusual Historicals with a post entitled Turkey, History, Remembrance and the Hittite Law of Adultery. And what might be the connection?
I have a guest post on Heroines of Fantasy about Briseis and finding voice. Briseis is right at home on this blog among the strong women and tales of adventure, magic, betrayal and war.
Review of Nancy Bilyeau’s Tudor thriller The Tapestry, third in the Joanna Stafford series. Highly recommended
