Falling Pomegranate Seeds – A Masterpiece.
I am feeling very humble – and blessed.
Falling Pomegranate Seeds: The Duty of Daughters (the first novel in my planned series about the life of Katherine of Aragon) has been out in the published world for…at least nine months. Since that time, my third Tudor has received many reviews, most of them glowing. I have even had readers (and reviewers) who have thanked me for writing this novel.
Falling Pomegranate Seeds: The Duty of Daughters was recently reviewed by Charlie Fenton, the regular reviewer for the Tudor Society.
At the end of her two page review, which can only be read by members of the Tudor Society, Charlie Fenton writes:
This book is a masterpiece in so many ways; it covers Katherine’s early life (which is rarely explored) and gives life to a frequently overlooked figure and shows life in great detail in late 15th century Spain. It is very well written and gives the reader the impression that they are actually there, with minor details about everyday life to political decisions which impact the whole country.
Wow. Fenton called my novel a masterpiece.
And then the next day I received a wonderful review from Tudors and other histories.
Minerva Casterly, the owner of this website, called Falling Pomegranate Seeds “a fantastic novel”. She concluded her review with:
“It is refreshing to see a historical fiction devote so much time to Katharine’s formative years, and sets the stage for the next books in her Katharine of Aragon series.” And the review ends with these glowing words “I recommend this book to all history buffs and those of you who like me, are very passionate about Tudor history.”.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to write a review of Falling Pomegranate Seeds: The Duty of Daughters. I tell you truly, to know readers enjoy my work is the best motivation to keep me writing new novels.
