CATHERINE OF BRAGANZA by Hilda Lewis
When virginal, convent-bred Catherine of Braganza, Princess of Portugal, sailed for England in 1662 to become the bride of Charles II, she had no personal knowledge of her betrothed nor of the political circumstances that had made an alliance between her Catholic homeland and Protestant England desirable. Filled with romantic fantasies, she knew only that she wished to please the handsome man who was about to become her husband.

If her marriage brought disillusionment, it was also to bring her wisdom and satisfactions that she never dreamed of upon leaving home. Forced to accept Charles’ succession of mistresses—Lady Castlemaine, who flaunted her position for all the Court to see; young Francis Stewart; Louise de Kerouaille, the secret agent of the King of France; and finally Nell Gwynne, that darling of the English theater—Catherine endured and ultimately triumphed.

For while history has made much of Charles as a profligate and heedless ruler bent only on his own pleasures, Hilda Lewis presents a side of him that is too often overlooked. In tracing his relationship with Catherine she shows him to be a man of sensibility and insight, whose passionate nature too often overcame his good intentions. She does not attempt to minimize the pain he caused the little Portuguese princess by his infidelities, but she makes clear how, with the passage of time, Catherine came to realize she had won something more than passing physical love—her husband’s unswerving loyalty to, and dependence upon, her. Gratefully Catherine accepted his deep affection and trust, happy in the knowledge that, if he sought pleasure with other women, it was to her that he came for understanding and comfort.

The very adversities of his reign helped to bring them closer together: the Great Plague, which swept the nation, and the Great Fire, which destroyed London; the intrigue for succession to the throne; the religious conspiracies of Protestant and Catholic alike, culminating in the infamous Titus Oates plot; and the ever present threat of war Spain, the Netherlands and friends. It is these events which not only provide the background for the little-known story of the strange and moving relationship but also enable the re-creation of one of the most violent and tragic eras in English history.

LITTLE PICTURES OF JAPAN
In 1925, Olive Kennon Beaupré and Katharine Sturges Knight published Little Pictures of Japan, a collection of timeless poetry and stories. Friends of Moon and Winds—so were the Japanese poets called who wrote the tiny poems that comprise the greater part of this book. Dewdrops of smallest compass are they, yet mirroring in vivid flashes the whole of Japanese life. In few words of primitive, childlike simplicity these old sages sang, for the little haiku poems are gems of only three lines comprising no more than seventeen syllables, the tiniest poems in the world. These minute gems, however, usher one into that atmosphere of tender sympathy with all that has life, that world of benign serenity where dwelt the ancient poets of Japan. Cricket, butterfly, bee, and frog, stars, flowers, winds-these were the things of which they sang. What could be more simple or within the understanding of the smallest child? Yet here is real poetry, and not mere doggerel, the finest poetry of Japan.

STRANGER IN THE PINES by May McNeer, illustrated by Lynd Ward
On the run. Adam Quinn is a runaway apprentice escaping his master in Philadelphia in the early 1800s. A boy running from the past and a terrible secret. His flight takes him to another state and another world where a person could almost lose himself—but not quite. For there is a constant reminder of the past; a menacing figure he can never quite elude. So he keeps running. First to the small town of Bogquake and to almost happy days where he finds a job in the bogs and meets a girl and her family; then running again and lost days alone in the mysterious pine barrens of southern New Jersey.
Another pause in the journey introduces Adam to Dr. Micah. Living with the wise, old doctor he becomes involved in work with the sick. He learns about the healing powers of herbs and comes to know and love the pines. But always in the background is the threatening presence of the hunter.
Stranger in the Pines traces Adam from the moment he starts running until he stops. It also tells of a boy growing up and coming to terms with his life. And in the course of his story, May McNeer’s text and Lynd Ward’s striking illustrations introduce the reader to the fascinating pine barrens, a region that is almost as remote and strange today as it was in Adam’s time.

Now for #Kindle! BLOODY MARY by Hilda Lewis. The Mary Tudor Trilogy: Book Three

Splendid in its completion of the story of a tragic Queen begun in I am Mary Tudor and continued in Mary the Queen, this final volume in the trilogy by Hilda Lewis is also an intensely human story.

In the folk memory of England, Mary is remembered yet as a scarlet legend of evil and cruelty symbolised by the flames which rose about the Protestant martyrs. Yet Hilda Lewis, who has traced the story of the shy, proud girl who grew to a warmhearted woman, shows what creative insight how Mary Tudor was indeed a ‘merciful prince’. Events that she could not control, the climate of the time that she was powerless to change, drove against the grain of our true nature. And beyond all was her personal tragedy of a marriage bed seldom shared with Philip, the king-consort as cruel as he was handsome and the heir that she longed for never to be granted by the God who seemed to have turned from her. Even that was not enough, and the rising star of Elizabeth, most brilliant of all the Tudor dynasty, cast Mary into shadow even while the throne was still hers. Elizabeth came between Mary and her people, between Mary and her husband, and the duel of jealousy between the half-sisters, both true daughters of Henry VIII in their strength of passion, flames through the closing chapters of the book.

In the roll of history it is the sins of Mary that are remembered. If ever the balance is to be restored it will be by such a sympathetic interpretation as Hilda Lewis here gives for the woman who came to be known as “Bloody Mary”.

PRINCE BANTAM by May McNeer & Lynd Ward

The Adventures of Yosh*tsune the Brave and his Faithful Henchman, Great Benkei of the Western Pagoda.

Prince Bantam is the happily combined work of a distinguished husband and wife team, Lynd Ward (1905 - 1985) and May McNeer Ward (1902 - 1994). May Ward wrote extensively for what she called “medium age” children, chiefly on historical subjects. Lynd Ward, an expert in both woodcut and lithography, illustrated many beautiful limited editions, as well as trade editions of books for both adults and children.
The advantages of the close collaboration between author and artist are strikingly apparent as the Wards again present a story and pictures that complement and enhance each other to perfection

Picking up where the first book in The Mary Tudor Trilogy, I am Mary Tudor, finishes, Mary the Queen covers the years of her marriage to Phillip of Spain and her first pregnancy. Hilda Lewis continues to give us an intensely human story of England’s last Catholic monarch. Told from Mary’s point of view, with meticulous research, Lewis gives us a sympathetic look at the woman who came to be known as “Bloody Mary”.

UP A CROOKED RIVER by May McNeer, illustrated by Lynd Ward

The four young Renfroes stared in consternation at the tubby little vessel tied up at the dock. That couldn’t be the ship that was supposed to take them up the river! They had expected to have fun on this trip to their new home in Florida, even with Aunt Mattie keeping them sternly on their best behavior. And now they’d be cooped up for days on that miserable little cheese box of a boat was simply nothing to do!
It was precisely because she was so small, however, that the Palmetto Queen landed them within a few hours into the midst of the most magnificent adventure of their whole lives.
How the little vessel became hopelessly marooned in the muddy bottom of the drained lake; how eleven oddly assorted people behaved in a situation both dramatic and absurd; how an opera singer, a hermit, and a gang of villainous jewel thieves played decisive roles; and how escape was finally contrived through the spunk and ingenuity of the two of Renfroes.
The humor of every episode is heightened by the fact that the story takes place in the 1870s when mannered gentility was the fashion. Readers will chuckle with delight as affectations and artificialities melt away under the unifying influence of danger and discomfort, and real human beings enter with zest into the excitement of a bang-up adventure.
