The Conquerors or Conqueroring Family were excellent. I considered doing them for myself but the margins were hell. Library loan would have to be used and someone who could see would probably have to do extensive work.

A member has requested two books, "Having A Mary Heart In A Martha World," by Joanna Weaver, and "The Silver Chalice," by Thomas Costain. The first, I found, is in the administrator rejection queue. I've written to Claire, but I wondered if anyone here is the validator, and if so, if you can tell me why it was recommended for rejection. Does it have to be rescanned, or is there something simple like missing copyright info or some missing pages that the submitter can fix? I'm going to wait to put the book on the Wish List until I find out, because if there's a simpe fix to make it Excellent, it would be a pity to have someone start from scratch. I was surprised to find no Thomas Costain books in the collection or being validated. These are, as I remember from my youth, excellent historical novels, and I seem to remember a discussion a while back about good historical novels being wanted and especially ones taking place in ancient and Biblical times--and places. The Silver Chalice is that kind of book. I did a bit of research, and it was a best-selling Fiction title of 1953. It tells the story of a silversmith who was commissioned by Luke to make a chalice for The Last Supper. According to one reader's review on Amazon, "It has suspense, history, greed, romance, love, longing, spirituality - the list of in depth emotions that the main character experiences is amazing." Thomas Costain has written similar excellent and very readable historical novels--enjoyable reading no matter what one's religion.
