Suddenly Sunday is hosted by the wonderful Svea at Confessions and Rambling of A Muse in the Fog.
Hello dear readers! And how is this lovely Sunday finding you? We had a few days last week of cooler weather so I am stoked about the upcoming fall season. Georgia is so beautiful in the Autumn. We will for sure be heading up into the north Georgia mountains once the leaves start changing and I can't wait for that!
So, it's been a few weeks since I last posted a Suddenly Sunday and a lot has been going on in my little corner of the world with my daughter starting high school. One recent development was that I was laid off this past Thursday. I didn't particularly enjoy my job, in fact I loathed it, but it was a paycheck ya know. So, now back to the oh so fun chore of job hunting :(
In happier news, I've been getting a lot of reading done. Let's see since my last SS post I managed to finish The Queen's Captive by Barbara Kyle, The de Lacy Inheritance by Elizabeth Ashworth, Dark Moon of Avalon by Anna Elliott, Wicked Company by Ciji Ware and Penelope's Daughter by Laurel Corona and I enjoyed all of them.
I am now reading The Princeling (Book Three, Morland Dynasty Series) by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles.
SYNOPSIS: The Morlands' rise to power, as tenuous as it was unexpected, now faces its greatest threat. Elizabeth I is on the throne and Protestantism is sweeping the land, threatening the position of the Catholic Morlands and forcing them to seek new spheres of influence. John, the heir, rides north to the untamed Borderlands to wed the daughter of a Northumberland cattle lord. But he finds he must first prove himself and win her heart through blood and battle. John's gentle sister Lettice is given in marriage to a ruthless Scottish baron, and in the treacherous court of Mary, Queen of Scots, she learns the fierce lessons of survival. Through birth and death, love and hatred, triumph and heartbreak, the Morlands fight to hold on to their place among England's aristocracy.
