Patchwork Cutters Book 7
Patchwork Cutters Book 7
by Marion Frost
Edition: Unknown Binding

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Illustration, 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Patchwork Cutters Book 7
The cover of this book clearly shows a book on top of a cake.I bought this book assuming instructions would be included for this decoration but when looking for them found I was directed to buy an extra book in this expensive series .Be wary, make sure that the instructions you hope you are buying are included in the book. Irritating,will not be buying again,very small books for the money.


The White Princess (Cousins War Series Book 5)
The White Princess (Cousins War Series Book 5)
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read., 2 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The fifth in the cousins war series.This book concentrates on Princess Elizabeth, daughter of Elizabeth Woodville(the White Queen) and Edward IV and sister of the princes in the tower.She is a young woman caught between her own mother's rebellious ambitions and her domineering mother- in- law, mother of Henry VII. It is essential for Princess Elizabeth to bear children for the Tudor dynasty and unite the white rose of York with the red rose of Lancaster. Henry brutally makes sure of a pregnancy as soon as their betrothal is arranged.Elizabeth loathes him for killing her beloved uncle, Richard III( remains dug up in Leicester car park very recently)with whom she had been having an affair.
The tensions between the main characters are maintained by the possibility that one of Elizabeth's missing, presumed murdered brothers, survived under the guise of Perkin Warbeck. This claim became a threat to Henry VII, dividing loyalties and challenging Elizabeth's husband's and childrens' right to inherit the throne of England.
Enjoy this book for what it is,an entertaining romp through history, there are times when it is acceptable to be more interesting than accurate.There is a good bibliography at the end of the book for those who want more to read more scholarly views on the historical accuracy.j

Pleased with this purchase, I shall not be paying £40+ for a original Canon set ever again. The cartridges fit my Canon MP640 printer perfectly and the printing standard is satisfactory for my purposes.

These are a heavy weight product, too big for my hands but ideal for the hard skin on your feet. I have cut several into smaller chunks to use for my fingernails.

I have many books on life drawing . This one has a fresh approach concentrating on movement and balance in the model and how how this may be achieved in a drawing. Enjoyable illustrations-- not just for the animator.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous melodrama about an abused woman., 25 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Repetitive flashbacks, big holes in the plot-- what happened on her pre natal visits ?-- surely the doctors noticed her injuries. I stopped reading it before I reached halfway through.It is cheap to buy but are you that desperate?Spend a little more and get something worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading for Collectors, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this book was published in 2009 things have not changed much.If you are a collector or someone who has a collection of picture postcards that you are planning to dispose of read this book before you do anything. You may be surprised at the value of some old picture postcards. If you have any of Midlands lace makers please sell them to me!
