My Teasers:

'Margaret realized that the change came from an unexpected quarter, as such changes usually do. A German monk named Martin Luther had during that eventful year denounced the practices of the monks and the Catholic Church, as Erasmus had denounced them before him; but whereas Erasmus mildly disapproved, this man was bold and passionate in his denunciation;and whereas Erasmus had taken refuge behind his scholarship and attacked with an almost lighthearted cynicism, the German monk did so with passionate indignation; whereas Erasmus had written for the initiated, Luther was fulminating for the multitude.'

page 109, 'The King's Confidante' by Jean Plaidy.

This takes me back. I read all the Jean Plaidy books I could find when I was a teenager.

I also remember seeing A Man For All Seasons about Meg and Sir Thomas More. I hope my library has a copy of this book!

I have never read this author for some reason or another. I really must change that. I hope you are having a lovely day ♥

I've never read Jean Plaidy, but I've been re-organizing my TBR stacks today and found one by her. I'll have to give her a try!

Good teaser. I have not read Jean Plaidy either.

This is the way I love to read history. I see you are reading this for a book group. That sounds like a good way to enjoy a subject like this.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Yours is quite pretty. I'll be back
