    This novel managed to combine historical inaccuracies with character slanders while diminishing neither. Elizabeth the First, portrayed as a dependent, indecisive child, has an affair with her childhood friend.

    by donna

    THIS NOVEL CONTINUES WHERE THE QUEEN'S FOOL LEFT OFF. ELIZABETH IS NOW QUEEN AND IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STRUGGLE TO CONSOLIDATE HER POWER. HER THRONE IS THREATENED BY HER COUSIN MARY AND ALSO BY HER PASSIONATE ATTACHMENT TO ROBERT DUDLEY, HER FAVORITE. THE TROUBLE IS THAT MARY THINKS SHE SHOULD BE QUEEN OF ENGLAND AND ROBERT HAS A WIFE. HOW ELIZABETH SOLVES THESE PROBLEMS IS WHAT THE REST OF THE STORY IS ABOUT. OF COURSE THIS IS A FICTIONALIZED SOLUTION TO THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF AMY DUDLEY. FAST PACED FICTIONALIZED HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF TUDOR HISTORY.

    Another page turner from Philippa Gregory! Fiction based on actual history, this narration is very believable and extremely enjoyable. You will fall in love with the characters.
