Author: C. J. Sansom
The Beginning: It was dark under the trees, only a little moonlight penetrating the half-bare branches. The ground was thick with fallen leaves; the horses' hooves made little sound and it was hard to tell whether we were still on the road.
The Friday 56: 'Mistress Jennet Matlin, a maid in waiting. She has cause to look sour. Her fiance is in the Tower, accused of a part in the conspiracy.'
Comment: This author writes some of the best historical fiction I've ever read. This is the 3rd of his books I've read and they are always enthralling.
