Wars of the Roses

We completed our inspirational table reading during the advent season with the Advent and Christmas writings of Alfred Delp and Dietrich Bonhoeffer:  The Prison Meditations of Father Delp and God is in the Manger.

We have begun a new historical book:  The Wars of the Roses:  The Fall of the Plantagenets and the Rise of the Tudors by Dan Jones.  Jones writes in the introduction how the fifteenth century civil war between the rival English royal houses of Lancaster and York is inaptly named “The War of the Roses”; and yet, the book is called “The Wars of the Roses.”  Regardless, should be a good read.
