I was kind of wondering which Cambridge she was talking, but I'm guessing it's the original, on the other side of the pond? Especially the one in Massachusetts doesn't have too many cobblestones left!
However, I have read one of the earlier books in this series, and really enjoyed it, and will be picking the others up sooner or later, for future enjoyment!

I have a smile on my face from your travels on the tube in grad school. How do you stay upright when the train is lurching? I tend to take a few people down with me, making a soft cushion for my landing. Historical fiction is usually true to the period in dress, traditions and customs.

We do tend to make assumptions about the past. That is why I love to hear the not so distant past first hand from those who have lived it.

Cambridge (MA) was bad enough in the winter; I can't imagine winter in the other Cambridge (University).

I am so glad that you went to grad school!! Taking all of that knowledge, and using it with such expression is such a gift!! You have retained so much, and it makes for such interesting reading. Your added touches give it that extra "twist" to keep it anything but boring!! Congratulations, and thank you for deciding on choosing writing as your career.

Great post. Most interesting. "History as
it should have been." It does add
something to historical fiction. I have the
first two books in the series and look
forward to reading them all.
