I have put great effort into reading 17 Carnations: The Royals, The Nazis And The Biggest Cover-up In History, by Andrew Morton, and I have to say I will not put in anymore.

Growing up I loved to color. We had video games and a television but I grew up in a time when only about an hour of screen time was the average for the day. No Internet, iPads or cell phones. My younger cousins call it the dark ages. It was one hobby that I had that …
Book four takes us into the 1300’s in the land of Kenetira.   This is a land loosely based on Spain, during the years before the Spanish Inquisition.
