This science fiction aspect of this classic story made it read as a brand new story. Cinder is a strong character, even if she has been forced […]

Growing up in the Episcopal (Anglican) Church, Henry VIII fascinated me, because I couldn’t comprehend how a man (even a king) could break away from the Catholic Church, and form his own during a time when the Pope reigned supreme over Catholic countries. Henry […]
