.....and boy, was Julie D. right about this one!!!
Prince of Foxes by Samuel Shellabarger is an old-fashioned book, in the very best sense of the word. It's an epic, a tear-jerker, a romance, a swashbuckler and a complete enjoyment. On top of that, it is one of the most effective stories about the ability of the good, the true and the beautiful to convert men from worldly goals to eternal values. It makes good look brave, masculine and worthy. Yee Haw!
What more can you ask from a book? If you like historical fiction AT ALL, go get the book and settle in for a fine read. I'm sorry mine was a library book. It was hard to give it back.
