I’m Reading Philippa Carr’s Daughters of England Books

It’s official. I’m out of new reading.

We knew it was only a matter of time, and it’s happened.

I’ve been inhaling my beloved sports romances, and I’ve discovered I really prefer the college sports books. And since I’m really, really picky, it’s not surprising that I’m having trouble finding new reads.

So what to do? Well, I should just work on my own book, along with two I’m beta reading. (And they are good ones.)

But I need something to read as I’m going to sleep at night, so I dug deep, way back into my reading history and came up with something that helped shape my reading and writing life.

My mother and grandmother were huge fans of Victoria Hold, who also wrote under the names of Jean Plaidy and Philippa Carr. I loved them all, but the ones that stuck with me most were the Philippa Carr Daughters of England series. In it, the author follows one family from early Tudor England up through World War I. That’s incredible–and what a way to learn history!

So right now I’m enjoying The Miracle at St. Bruno’s and Saraband for Two Sisters. If you enjoy historical fiction, I recommend these books.

Until the next NA sports romance comes along.

Peace, love and romance~

  1. I know you posted this over 2 years ago, but I started reading the series because I ran out of books on my kindle unlimited app and found the library app. I had totally forgotten about Victoria Holt ie: philippa Carr and found these. They are off my genre a little I usually enjoy more contemporary mystery but I’m enjoying them. I love history and I know a lot of this era so it makes it even more so enjoyable.

    1. Right??? LOVE those books. Actually, I like anything the author who wrote as Victoria Holt, Jean Plaidy and Philippa Carr produced. Good stuff!
