George shares Book Reviews

Well-known genealogist George Morgan shared some book reviews in a recent post. I was surprised to see novelist Philippa Gregory on his list. I enjoyed his comments on the accuracy of her research:

Ms. Gregory is a masterful researcher and has done her genealogical,
historical, and social homework to the nth degree. She has translated her
intimate knowledge and understanding into an exciting read. She employs a unique
ability to take the driest of historical accounts, diaries, and correspondence
and recreate the scenes and produce dialog that tells the stories of these women
and other historical personages, bringing them all to life!
