Sad News about Sharon Kay Penman

From the article on “The Poisoned Pen Bookstore“, we learned that the unforgettable author Sharon Kay Penman died on January 22nd, 2021.

Sharon Kay Penman also on our blog and website will remain unforgettable, because of her impressive and detailed work about King Richard III, which influenced and moved thousands, no millions. Because the work was not only published and distributed in English, but also translated in many more languages, where the story of King Richard III (little ‘Dickon’) reached the heart of people around the world.

Her impressive description and eye for historical detail, while creating a grabbing novel, set “The Sunne in Splendour” by Sharon Kay Penman apart.

Fanny/iz4blue on her blog DistRActed Musings of one ReAlity initiated a collective reading of “The Sunne in Splendour” back in the year 2012.

The results and pages of our following along with the reading schedule and Twitter discussions are still here on this website and available.

The main page “Fall in Splendour” and the chapter index of the book can be found in our site-menu. We also started a character index, but never got around to finish it.

R.I.P., unforgettable Sharon Kay Penman.
