She was one of my favorites growing up.

She also wrote a series called "The Daughters of England" where she traced a family from Tudor to almost modern times...they were always enmeshed in the events of the day, and one learned a lot of history from those as well.  Those were written under the name Philippa Carr.  I highly recommend!
So long and thanks for all the fish

Thank you, everyone.  Especially the poster who replied about looking up characters to do further research and being disappointed that they were misrepresented.  That makes sense, even if the child in question is reading a bedtime story with their mom or dad and having that character stick in their head for ten years.

I have Alexandra (Tsarina) by Carolly Erickson and I wondered if the lace story was true. I'm sorry if this has been discussed here but I was wondering on it.
Why I enjoy watching The Andy Griffith Show at 2am, I'll never know.
Why yes, I do enjoy comical stylings of Anastasia :]
