Sometimes, I read a book that I wish I had written. "Pilate's Wife" by Antoinette May is just such a book. This historical novel deals artfully with the early Roman Empire, and female divinity rests at the core of the story. I loved this book for so many reasons!
Another historical novel I've read recently was "The Devil's Queen" by Jeanne Kalogridis. This tale of Catherine de Medici is full of intrigue, magic, and misplaced passion. I enjoyed it well enough, but the end seemed to drag.
