Book: The Plantagenets : The Warrior Kings and Queens who Made England by Dan Jones

Recommended by: Joseph

This exciting and bestselling book recounts the 250-year history of medieval England's dysfunctional ruling family. Knights and ladies, loyalty and treachery, war and peace, the pen and the sword - it's all here in vibrant detail.

This book heralded the career of a promising young historian who has gone on to write about the Wars of the Roses and the Magna Carta.

Book: A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner

Recommended by: Karen

I like it when I learn about a new period of history that I hadn't studied before when I read historical fiction.  Meissner takes the reader to Ellis Island circa 1911 to a medical ward treating immigrants with scarlet fever.  Nurse Clara Wood finds herself treating a patient that is suffering the same loss she is, the death of a loved one.  Meanwhile, in Manhattan 2011, widow Taryn Michaels discovers something precious that once was lost can be found. The stories are tied together with a beautiful scarf, covered in marigolds.  A fascinating look at life, love and a piece of history I had never thought about before.

Book: Bubba the Cowboy Prince: a fractured Texas Tale by Helen Ketteman

Recommended by: Marie

Cinderella meets Texas fella. A predictable fairy tale ending but with characters and wit you wouldn't quite expect from this fairy godmother. A story sure to tickle your funny bone and guaranteed to have you in stitches from the first page to the last.
