Book Reviews

The American Heiress

The American Heiress is a truly compelling novel written by Daisy Goodwin. I was entranced by it the entire time I was reading it and even for a time after. 169 more words

The Duke’s Children wraps up the Palliser series of Trollope’s novels and, though I doubt Trollope planned it this way, unites the emotional and political story lines. 634 more words
