I’m sure I wasn’t alone in adding Jane Urquhart to my reading list, after attending Sandra’s presentation to CWLC on March 20th!

Using fascinating images to illustrate her talk, Sandra shared her admiration of the author’s mastery of sense of place and characterizations. Sandra revealed common themes interwoven through Jane Urquhart’s body of work.

 

I was left with the strong impression that Jane Urquhart’s works help readers “live” history, in the way only good historical fiction can. It will help us better preserve our past and understand who we were and who we are. I can hardly wait to read one of her novels this Fall!

Please read Sandra’s Presentation Summary for a lot more!
