Two Controversial Monarchs

Historical novels remain high on the popularity lists and are thus attractive to new writers; authors who succeed in the genre are encouraged to continue. Among current favourites is Reay Tannahill, a Scottish writer who first made her name with books on historical food and historical sex, and then went on to use this specialist knowledge in her novels. Ann Lyon, who reviewed the work of Professor Bernard Knight in our previous issue, now reviews Miss Tannahill’s two latest books.
The Seventh Son by Reay Tannahill
Fatal Majesty by Reay Tannahill
