I read these in Feb. Great reads, timely (plague time in 1300 England)
and hopeful reads. These are the first 2 books of a trilogy not yet complete.
I say hopeful because in the day to day decisions a wise woman ruler
and her people took power back instead of being afraid or superstitious. At the
end they kept good health and thrived. They changed society from the top (and
middle) power down, established herbal medicine and intuitive disease
management and fed themselves because they cooperated together.
