This book did not disappoint me either in the writing, or delivery.
Philippa Gregory continues to have a skill for giving maximum historical references, while at the same time making her stories, a gripping must read.
For anyone concerned her writing will be stale and so full of historical facts that I t will make for unpleasant reading, I can tell yoy, this like all the rest of her writings will be a pleasure to read.
Started out very slowly. It took a while to get into it and I almost gave it up but the pace eventually picked up and I'm anxious to start the next book in the series.
A splendid blend of fact and fiction brings forth a young woman with fierce determination. As she rises to status with two princes, she yields unwavering faith in God and her husbands, triumphing in her destiny through the end. Thank you for an amazing listening experience!
This has been my least favorite of her novels. It seemed to be very repetitious. The narrator did a good job but there was nothing in the novel that made me eager to get to it.
I'm fascinated with stories of the rise and fall of the Kings and queens of England- this did not disappoint! Loved the way the author was able to give detail and insight into the thoughts of each character.
I love history but have tended to steer clear of these history related novels. However, this one was enjoyable. I was able to follow the story and appreciate the history lesson. I didn't put it down until I finished it. This woman, Catherine, was an incredible lesson in determination, dedication, although possibly misguided. Regardless of the fact that she did finally become queen.
She has always been one of my most favorite authors growing up!
This story is a beautiful insight to the queen that was quietly the center of it all!
