The Lucky Shilling has been added to Bernard Cornwell’s Reading Club
We are proudly included in this comprehensive reading list of historical novels, epics, adventures and true stories.
If you like the books that Bernard Cornwell enjoys reading, then you might enjoy the books on his reading list. It is simply a place where news of books can be exchanged – any books – not just historical novels.
Bernard Cornwell began as a researcher on the Nationwide programme and ended as Head of Current Affairs Television for the BBC in Northern Ireland. He met Judy, a visiting American, and fell in love. Judy was unable to move to Britain for family reasons so Bernard went to the States where he was refused a Green Card. He decided to earn a living by writing, a job that did not need a permit from the US government – and for some years he had been wanting to write the adventures of a British soldier in the Napoleonic wars – and so the Sharpe series was born.
