    Is this a “real” magazine or a virtual one. I hope it is real. I have not been getting it.

    I have a not her idea for books for your daughter. They are called the Betsy/Tacy books by Maud Hart Lovelace. Not as well known as the Little House books but just as beloved!

      Hi Jean,
      It’s a digital magazine and you can read it or download it from the site.

      Thank you for the book ideas!

    I just got around to reading this month’s magazine and wanted to clarify something in Debra Bayani’s article on the Loire Valley. On page 42 she states “Edward and Anne’s (Neville) son Charles VIII was born at ….in 1470.”
    I think this must be a mistake, as I believe Prince Edward (Henry VI and Margaret of Anjou’s son) and Anne Neville didn’t have any children. Charles VIII parents were Louis XI of France and Charlotte of Savoy.
    Am I correct?

      Hi Ricki,
      I’ve just asked Tim to look into that and it seems that in the editing and layout phase the article was changed, with two paragraphs being merged into once, so it is completely our fault and not Debra’s at all. The original, written by Debra, read:
      “Once in royal possession it became the favourite residence of Louis XI, who had his wife Queen Charlotte of Savoye live there. Their son, the future Charles VIII, was born at the castle in 1470.”
      Thank you for pointing that out and we will be adding a correction to the next issue of the magazine.
