Author Sarah Kennedy was a crowd pleaser last year as guest speaker at Massanutten Regional Main Library, and she returns to the downtown branch Monday, January 26, 1 pm, to discuss her latest historical fictional novel, City of Ladies, the second publication in The Cross and The Crown Series.

Whatever happened to the Catholic nuns when King George VIII broke from the Pope and created the Church of England? Kennedy has created scenarios of what could have happened in this historical period and has created her scenarios in the two books of The Cross and Crown series. The first book, The Altarpiece, was published in 2013. Both books are not only historical fiction but also mysteries.
Kennedy will transport the library audience back to the Renaissance period of Tudor England. The main character, Catherine, a former nun, finds herself in a new life after British monarch Henry VIII turns the convent into private land. She tries to shelter other nuns and have them serve the community, but the women begin to disappear, one by one, and Catherine has to figure out what happened and who is responsible.
Well renowned Southern writer Lee Smith praises City of Ladies as "...filled with drama, suspense, vivid scenes, and larger-than-life characters. City of Ladies fast becomes impossible to put down..."
Kennedy, an English professor at Mary Baldwin College, is also the author of seven books of poems. She holds a PhD in Renaissance Literature and an MFA in Creative Writing.
