The Lady's Slipper
by Deborah Swift

1660. King Charles II has returned from exile, but memories of the English Civil War still rankle. There are old scores to settle, and religious differences threaten to overturn a fragile peace. When Alice Ibbetson discovers a rare orchid, the Lady’s Slipper, growing in a wood belonging to Richard Wheeler, she is captivated by its beauty— though Wheeler, a Quaker, is determined to keep the flower where God intended it to grow. Knowing that the orchid is the last of its kind, she steals the flower, little dreaming that her seemingly simple act will set off a chain of events that will lead to murder and exile, and change her life forever…

I know, I know, you're afraid to spread yourself too thin. Don't worry, there's no punishment or horrible penalty if you don't quite make your goal. The challenge police won't come knocking at the end of the year. I solemnly swear we won't chop off your head. You really have nothing to lose and everything to gain, like the chance to win some great historical fiction books!

Welcome to the Historical Tour de Genre Reading Challenge. This is my favorite genre to both read and write. I am a history buff and avid researcher. Although I've signed up for several other reading challenges hosted by great book blogging friends, I decided to start one of my own. I hope you find it interesting and decide to join in. Sometimes the title 'historical' sounds stuffy, or boring and stiff, but it doesn't have to be. Actually, the genre is widening and many sub-genres have developed. To celebrate the diversity I designed a challenge that explores various subs of my favorite reading category.
