An Unexpected Lagniappe

My book on medieval women contains many images and is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as those wishing to find out more about these amazing medieval women.

Feeling rather dreary while waiting in the post office line for two hours, I got an email out of the blue with this message: "I'm a history student in West Yorkshire in England and I just wanted to tell you I loved your book. I quoted you several times as a secondary source for my essay and presentation in my module of Community & Identity in the Later Middle Ages. I loved the strong women you portrayed like Margery Kempe, Margaret Paston, and Margaret Beaufort."

 

 

What a lovely lagniappe! Suddenly, that post office line didn't seem so daunting.
