The Queen's Fool

This is by the same author as The Other Boleyn Girl, which should tell you a lot. It's about a young girl who fled the Inquistion in Spain because her mother was burned at the stake for being a Jew. She and her father end up in London, and because the girl has visions she ends up in the courts of King Edward and Queen Mary as an Innocent Fool.

It was the perfect mindless book to keep me entertained during my four-hour layover at JFK and during the seven-hours I spent on the plane from JFK to Austin.

I think, though, that this officially ends my period of historical fiction set in Tudor and Elizabethan times. I've had it with heaving bodices and beheadings.
