Henry's Court You
know how a song sometimes plays in your head over and over again? And when you start singing it ever so softly under your
breath, others around you get annoyed, but they start singing it, too?
Well, I woke up this morning with Henry the Eighth filling my thoughts. Don't ask me why. And the fact is, I can't stop
repeating the almost insidiously identical verses over and over and over again and again and again. Not even playing Mozart
on my stereo drowns it out.
With the exception that the title of the song is also the name of England's king in
the mid-1500s, it has nothing to do with my reading The Chalice: A Novel by Nancy Bilyeau in which Henry VIII is, in fact, a minor character. Only that, like the song, I can't get the story out
of my head. My reasoning is in my review now posted on www.authorsexposure.com.
Please follow the link and enjoy. I bet the subject will reel in your mind, too, tempting you to read the book!!
In the meantime....
