Philippa Gregory ass, thicker around the trunk.
Philippa Gregory ass, thicker around the trunks of trees as if they were dewponds of gold. They looked like wildflowers; but they were not. Tradescant had planned them, planted them, nourished them. He looked at them and smiled - as if he were greeting friends. Sir Robert Cecil strolled up, his uneven tread instantly recognizable in the crunch of the gravel.

I love all of Philippa Gregory's books, but though this one did not seem like it would measure up to her later ones about English royals, it was a wonderful surprise.
