The Family Tree Saga

My Latest Book: The Making of a Tudor

A world of women who lived their lives in our past.

It was all so very different in the past. In our history lessons we learned the dates and the events, we even learned the names of some important people and what they said and did. But they were mostly men. What about the women? What did they do? My books will lead you down the centuries, following the lives of some of the women in my family tree.
