Review for New Gillian Bagwell Book

There are already great reviews coming in for Gillian Bagwell’s newest book, Venus in Winter.  Gillian, as you will surely remember, is our July LCW Salon Presenter. She’ll also be using her background in theater to share tips on literary presentation and reading skills. This most recent praise comes from RT Book Reviews, which gave it 4 stars!

“Bagwell’s third novel is an engrossing look at a powerful woman in English history.  Spanning age 12 through 40, the story moves at a nice pace through the life of four-time widow Bess of Hardwick.  With the book’s rich descriptions, readers will feel as if they are right there among the pomp and circumstance of 1500s England, as Bess finds herself thrust into the glamorous, yet treacherous, court life of King Henry VIII.  As Bess navigates her rise through society and secures her place in history, Venus in Winter becomes a worthy epic novel.”
