  4. Glad I could click on this one to see it up close. Very pretty. The ladies seem to have different expressions/demeanor, but definitely Deja Vu.

  9. Kathleen,right on! You said a mouthful!! LOL
    Among 70 historical books I got from Freecycle.com, just ran across What People Wore, a Visual History of Dress from Ancient Times to 20th Century America. This dress appears to be from 1830 to 1845 with Mary Todd Lincoln wearing something similar in 1860 so guess I should loan them the book? LOL Cheryl, it had cowboys and even 2 of Buffalo Bill, but not his theatrical get up for the Wild West Show. Shades of Rain Shadow!
    Does anyone know what Fin De Siecle c.1895 means? Turn of the Century? Found it in a book I am reviewing set from 1887 to 1901 and in this reference book; Don't recollect seeing that phrase before, then TWICE in one day!

  10. I have never seen it, but I looked it up and Fin De Siecle is French for end of the century according to one source. So "Fin De Siecle c.1895" would probably mean "end of century, circa (year) 1895" I think it also can refer to fashion, literature and art in the late 19th century according to the dictionary.

  11. Ya know...now that I look at the covers even more closely...the ones on Gail's don't really look very medieval. Is it just me?

  12. Jennifer THANKS so much for looking that up as I was pressed for time. I consider myself well-read with an excellent vocabulary, but the book I'm reviewing stumped me on 2 in the first two pages!! LOL Fortunately, it didn't keep that up so the review will be positive for Anglo-philes interested in romance. Samara Moon by S H (Steve)Post. I could see my 18 yr old son being interested in the military aspect of it and it wasn't risque so I could recommend it to high school students and great-grandmothers/fathers.
