If you like the history of Henry VII & his wives, you'll like this one. Philippa Gregory
Dracula. Bram Stoker. New York, Doubleday & McClure Co., 1899. First American Edition. The rare first American edition of this immortal classic and cornerstone of supernatural fiction. Cover art, with Dracula’s castle high atop a hill with bats flying and the gilt-stamped sun setting. 7¼x5, original decorative tan cloth, front cover stamped and lettered in dark blue, gilt and green.
I was immediately swept up in the story. It grabs you from the start. I loved how the author stays true to the history of the time, while at the same time creating such a dramatic and heart-wrenching story.
