“The Order of the White Boar”: A Discovered Diamond

Today has been quite a day! I awoke to the news that The Order of the White Boar has been chosen as a Discovered Diamond.

Founded by historical fiction author Helen Hollick, the aim of the Discovering Diamonds review website is “to showcase well-written historical fiction for readers to enjoy”. As the review team say, “we are fussy: we only publish reviews of the best books, so we also take note of correct presentation and formatting as well as the quality of writing – and when space and time are limited we may only select a few books a month to review . This will mean that if [a] book is selected to be reviewed then you know it is of an approved status.”

So you can imagine how chuffed I am! Particularly when you take a look at the quality of the other books that are reviewed on the site.

Senior submissions editor Nicky Galliers says “This delightful novel is aimed at younger readers but that should not put off older readers.” Duke Richard “is a rather attractive character and one can’t help but like him … There are more books to come and I shall certainly be reading them.”
