I know I'm reading a good historical novel when I find myself looking up the history of the character involved. Excellent narration and beautiful story. Four stars for some needed editing. Don't let that stop you from enjoying this lovely book.
I really enjoyed this book. Weir's portrayal of Lady Jane was sweet and relatable. I loved the use of historical facts. This book and the "Elizabeth" book make me interested in this period even more.
Weir has the ability to make you feel right in the middle of the story. Her accurate history details is amazing. Please add more of her books.
I was mesmerized by this wonderful audio book. The narrators are excellent. I learned a great deal about this dramatic time in English history. I look forward to reading more from this author.
If you enjoy Tudor-era history, you'll love this one! There are plenty of historical facts, and Weir is a master of making her characters come to life and seem to be people you could know. Details down to clothes, food, chambers all contribute to the beauty of this story. This little known Tudor gets her due here.
The author gives us an inside look into the mind of the innocent young girl, Lady Jane Grey. Jane was pushed and abused by the very people who should have stood strong to protect her. Old England was in a religious transition and Jane was caught in the middle. The readers did a superb job in the narration. I truly enjoyed this 3 part book. Although I knew how the story would end, I kept hoping the outcome would change. This story will stay with me for a long while.
A beautifully written, well-read, heartbreaking story. Probably true, but will have to go to a history book (England, just after Henry VIII) to be sure.
Another book about the Tudor era. I wouldn't have even guessed it was a different author. If you enjoyed Gregory's books you'll like this one.
Very good historical fiction. This brings history (factual or not) to life. The narrators are ok for some of the characters and others are very good.
This was a great read. I would highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys historical fiction. I liked how the author gives the perspective of several different characters. The author does a great job organizing this story from start to finish. I couldn't wait to turn my ipod on to listen to it every day!
