diplomat meets with the Pope, when Henry Cabot Lodge confers with Pope Paul VI in U.S. . Rome

What motivated me today to check out this date in 1970? I got an email from a book blogger interested in reviewing MRS. LIEUTENANT. She wrote: “I would love the chance to review it for you, especially because I was born in 1969 and there’s not much ‘historical fiction’ from that time period.”
She also wrote in a follow-up email: “I keep trying to clue people into the fact that the 70s were a world away. I’m hoping your book sparks some memories.”
I couldn’t agree more with this book blogger – I hope MRS. LIEUTENANT does spark some memories.
