Alison Weir is noted for taking on complex and involved history lines and making them approachable and easy to digest. The Tudor area is a drama rich in religious turmoil, classic bad guys and mysterious behind the scenes deals. One faces a heady task in trying to keep all the characters straight and getting a grip on how the drama realistically unfolds. Weir makes this inquisitive search an easy one as she is so well researched and explains all in a accessible and fascinating way.
One finds the subjects draw us in in a human way and this delightful page turner is involved but structured for the readers enjoyment. One can keep track easily of the who's who and where and when the story unfolds, so the reader isn't left out in the cold due to too many dry facts and lofty historical conclusions. It's a book I didn't want to put down, but forced myself to so I could absorb the rich tapestry of time, place and those people involved. I didn't have to wait long as Weirs organized and enjoyable writing made everything clear and left me wanting more.
I will definitely be reading another of her books with the almost guilty pleasure of seeing and understanding the complex and fascinating lives of these historical people and their incredible lives.
