Friday Finds: Dec. 5

I post my entire list of weekly discoveries on Sundays, but I like to pick out at least one book to highlight for this meme. To see what others found this week, click here.

Today, both books are historical fiction and both come from fellow bloggers.

Confessions of a Pagan Nun was reviewed by Cathy at Kittling Books (here). The setting is AD 500, the convent of St. Brigit, County Kildare, Ireland. The story covers Druids, early Christianity, and Ireland -- what more could you want! For more information, see Cathy's review.

The Conqueror was reviewed by Amy on Passages to the Past (here). I hadn't realized that Heyer wrote historical fiction. This one is about William the Conqueror and 11th-century Normandy and describes the Battle of Hastings. For more information see Amy's review.

Thanks to both of you for your great reveiws!
