Sex, Lies and Embroidery

Today I had hoped to spend mostly hanging out soaking up the atmosphere of the folk festival but sadly the weather had other ideas. It's been raining all day. We did take a walk into town and there were still a few hardy dancers battling the rain but it just wasn't the same as yesterday.

Instead we spent some time wandering round the shops. I'm not usually an impulse buyer but we were in the book store and for the first time ever I bought a book on a total whim. I didn't even read the blurb on the back to find out what it was all about!
The tag line at the top reads 'A Powerful tale of sex, lies and embroidery' Who could resist, lol! It turns out to be an historical novel about the bishop who commissioned the Bayeux Tapestry. Anyone read it? I guess only time will tell whether it's as exciting as the tag leads you to believe.
