Loved this book when I read it a couple of years ago. Memoirs of a Geisha: Arthur Golden’s book tells the story of a Kyoto geisha during the time of World War II.

Margaret George's novel follows Mary's life from her ascent to the throne when just six days old, her stormy years as Scotland's queen and her ill-advised romances, through her long years of imprisonment by Elizabeth I, and finally, her beheading. The story opens with Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia manipulating papal elections in 1492 to become the new Pope Alexander How to Become a Perfect Knight in Five Days (Rainy Day Readers). The origin of the Hundred is somewhat hazy. Most of what we know about this administrative unit is derived from a document known as the Hundred Ordinance. Dated somewhere between 939 and 960, the Ordinance is the subject of controversy among historians who are unable to agree upon its author. But the Ordinance was definitely in existence by Edgar’s reign Cold Iron (Malkin). Interspersed with Salva’s narrative is that of Nya, who tells of her life in modern (2008) Sudan, which revolves around her daily eight hour walk to fetch water for her family Hamlet.

In 1987 James Woodress, Cather's foremost biographer, claimed that the harsh response the novel provoked in several reviewers (most notably H. Mencken) stemmed from inattentive reading: such reviewers "did not read the novel carefully to see that Cather had no illusions about the war" and "simply ignored the fact that the novel is told mostly from Claude's point of view" (326) The Legend of the King (The Squire's Tales).

Latour comforts Sada by giving her not warm words but a "little silver medal, with a figure of the Virgin"—something to look at.
