Back in Time

In today’s featured titles we’ll meet the enigmatic Romanov sisters, dig deeper into the relationship between Queen Elizabeth  and Mary, Queen of Scots, and watch blow-by-blow as the Spanish Armada fails to destroy England.

THE ROMANOV SISTERS: The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra by Helen Rappaport
Historian Helen Rappaport brings the four Russian Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia Romanov, to life in their own words, drawing extensively on previously unseen or unpublished letters, diaries and archival sources, to illuminate the opulence of their doomed world and their courage as they faced a terrible end. “Readers will be swept up in the author’s leisurely yet informative narrative as she sheds new light on the lives of the four daughters.” — Publishers Weekly

THE SPANISH ARMADA by Robert Hutchinson
In this dramatic account of the Spanish Armada’s attempt to destroy Elizabeth’s England, Hutchinson uses everything from contemporary eyewitness accounts to papers held by the national archives in Spain and the United Kingdom to recreate the 1588 sea battle with Spain that assured the survival of Protestant England. “Readers know how the battle turned out, but they will relish Hutchinson’s intensely detailed account... Those with fond memories of Garrett Mattingly’s classic THE ARMADA will discover an equally enthralling successor.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

TUDORS VERSUS STEWARTS: The Fatal Inheritance of Mary, Queen of Scots by Linda Porter
British historian Porter regales readers about the rivalry between cousins Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth and their respective dynasties which eventually united Scotland and England. “A wonderfully thorough history of the Scots that thankfully avoids dwelling on stories that have been explored countless times before—especially fitting now as Scotland decides whether to withdraw from the union with England.” — Kirkus Reviews
