    I have Gareth’s book on Catherine Howard and De Lisles to about the Grey sisters, both wonderful books in my opinion, I might read The Virgin and the Crab since you recommend it Claire, of course I have my own favourite historical books, ‘ The Concubine’ by Lofts which I believe I have mentioned before and ‘ The Goldsmiths Wife’ by Plaidy, here she gives the reader a sympathetic view of Richard 111, it is not Tudor obviously, pre Tudor but I enjoyed it so much and then I purchased Weirs book on the ‘Princes In The Tower’, wonderfully researched book about these two tragic victims of the brutal age they lived in, my sister gave me a book about the ladies in waiting who served Anne Boleyn which I haven’t got round to reading yet, but am looking forward to it very much, Claire are you going to do your Tudor tours this year at all? I have never been but might be able to attend and they do sound so wonderful.
