The book was engrossing and left me wanting more. I hope Alison Weir is busy writing about Queen Elizabeth. Excellent narration.
Fan of mystery & romance -- particularly of historical persuasion!"
I have enjoyed several Alison Weir novels about the wives and daughters of King Henry VIII but this was one of my favorites. Love the narration by Rosalyn Landor, as well!
A busy Mum and Accountant. Listen to books while driving to work or sunbathing is my guilty pleasure.
The story moved at a good pace, the story was interesting and while being educational.
All were great.
She is a very good performer, making sure all the characters had their own personality.
The story held my attention, however Weir may be stretching things here. History says Elizabeth was not chaste, but a still born? Be that as it may this one is worth the $$ and as usual Weir has done in depth reasearch to validate her story line.
I really enjoyed this book. It is always fun to listen to a story that has really well researched historical facts turned into fiction. Alison Weir is one of the best at this. Rosalyn Landor, as usual, did an excellent job with the narration. She is one of my favorites.
I love reading about Elizabeth the First. This narrator was not not very good, but not terrible. The material of the story is great, and the authors note at the end was really good.
Not Alison Weir. I've enjoyed Rosalyn Landor's narration of Charles Todd's Bess Crawford mysteries.
Excised the descriptions of child molestation and rape. I'm disgusted with the large number of positive star ratings this book has received. Apparently, people like sex scenes -- even if they're not between consenting adults.
She's a great narrator. She was given trash to work with.
I was looking for more historical fiction about English history because I loved Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. Alison Weir is no Hilary Mantel.
