Our Book of the Week:

Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory: If I told you that I always have a pile of books that I am reading through and that audible is one of the top three apps I use on my phone. I love audible books and haven’t actually read a Phillipa Gregory for years, but I started listening to this last week and haven’t stopped listening since… it is so very good. There is nothing like a well read audible, to keep you gripped… Set in tudor England, three princesses destined to be queen, bound together through blood and marriage… there is love and loss, betrayal and victory… and peril on every level. The sisters do become queens of England, Scotland and France… and in a world where you can’t trust anybody, they each pay a huge price to fulfil their destiny.
