Interview Questions 24: Answered by Cynthia Sally Haggard

What was the first historical novel you read?

I’m not sure, but I remember enjoying Jean Plaidy’s Isabella & Ferdinand trilogy (Castile for Isabella, Spain for the Sovereigns, and Daughters of Spain) when I was about ten.

This is what my copy of Daughters of Spain looked like when I was ten.

What is the last historical novel you read?

My Dear Hamilton by Stephanie Dray & Laura Kamoie. I loved the voice, the blend of love & exasperation in Eliza’s voice as she talked about her husband.
