THE DOOMSDAY BOOK by Connie Willis

This time travel story takes place in England during the Black Death of 1348. Once again, the Complete Idiot’s Ultimate Reading List has struck solid gold! When I read the last page of THE DOOMSDAY BOOK, I put the book down and thought blankly at the author, “Jesus Christ, lady. You’ve written one hell of a book.” And she HAS.


Set of course in Tudor England under the reign of King Henry VIII, SECRET DIARY is a startlingly good retelling of Anne Boleyn’s story via a fictional journal that is discovered and read by her daughter Elizabeth Tudor when she becomes Queen. Elizabeth finds unsettling parallels between her mother’s story and her own illicit and dangerous love for Lord Robert Dudley.
