New Acquisition

It was hot again, and I didn’t want to go back to my often stuffy apartment after work, (the perils of living in an old building on a summery day with no wind and a lousy air conditioner), so I stopped by Barnes and Noble for a latte a trip through the shelves- especially the clearance section, where I found this:

This is the story of Queen Lakshmi, who led armies against the British in an attempt to keep them from conquering her lands in India. She was one of the women written about in Jason Porath’s Rejected Princesses, and since I’m in the midst of an historical fiction craze, it looked like a good pick. If I like this one, I’ll probably read Moran’s other books, Nefertiti, in particular.
