Probably one of my favourites as a reader. Especially when you feel they are impeccably researched. Which brings me to the question: how do you research the period you are writing about? Google? local Library? or think it is so long ago, no one cares anymore? I am actually personally really interested in the daily life of historical periods as against what we already know about the kings, queens, and anyone who wants to be one of those. What were their kitchens like, how DID they sew those gorgeous outfits and who sewed them? Where they ever laundered? How? And those who sewed them, how did they live? What did they eat, how did they get their food? How did the common people live? Any takers?
