Sorry kids, no feet.

I am a former stay-at-home mom who has given up her hopes and dreams of becoming a professional reader. I now spend my days showing small children how to play games on computers. Right now I'm living vicariously through my 9 year-old who is reading everything she can get her hands on.

Game of Queens: The Women Who Made Sixteenth-Century Europe - Sarah Gristwood

The author does not spend a ton of time giving the reader background information but instead dives right into how things relate to the women being discussed.
