LibraryThing reader loved The Queen Elizabeth Story | Rosemary Sutcliff Discovery of the Day

Of Rosemary Sutcliff, Lizzy at LibraryThing writes to me:

When I was 10 my mum bought me The Queen Elizabeth Story. It was the first Rosemary Sutcliff I had read. I was fascinated with the historical detail, especially the clothes. I didn’t know what a ‘kirtle’ was at all. But by far the best part was when the tapestry of “Samarkhand the Golden” came to life. It is one of my favourite passages in literature, along with “Riddles in the Dark” from “The Hobbit”. My daughter is about to turn 10 and so I shall introduce her to Warrior Scarlet, The Eagle of the Ninth et al before long.
