I had this book reserved at my library when I first heard it was coming out and it came in on Saturday. I wanted to read it straight away, but was disappointed that it was going to take time away from my Halloween Bingo. I was very excited when I got to the "Scotland, Autumn 1503" chapter. I believe, and correct me if I am wrong, that I can use this as my "Fall" into a good book square! Woot!
"The trees grow down to the water's edge and rain their leaves on us as if we were in a parade and people were throwing flowers. The woods are all the colors of bronze and gold, red and brown, and the higher slopes of the hills are ablaze with the red of rowan trees."
It presents a gorgeous picture. Now if Princess/Queen Margaret would quit being a whiny, annoying, jealous biotch, I could enjoy the book more than I am. :)
