Reading this book got me started on my love of reading about the Kings and Queens of England and I have been completely consumed since!
Loved it...Very well written and narrated, Susan Lyons had a pleasant voice and did each character very well. I enjoyed listening to and reading this book. Philippa Gregory is a wonderful author.
Ms. Greggory at her best. This was my first book I read of hers and have been a die hard fan ever since.
I am so sad this book has ended. I will miss the characters, the plot, the history and the narration. Wow! Great read!!
I like this better, for a couple reasons: I like the reader better as she actually read the words with the emotions that were stated in the text. The story line was also better. It was still a little rambling at times and redundant, but less so than the previous. I thought there was lot more intrigue in this story. Of course the story is much more famous, but I enjoyed reading it from Mary's perspective.
British ex-pat living in NC. Have more personalities than Sybil which is reflected in my choice of books! Frustrated writer at heart.
I could not stop listening as I was fully invested within the first five minutes. It really was a passionate roller coaster of a read. One moment I loved I was totally infatuated with the primary players however only a chapter later I felt so frustrated with them that I wanted to smack their heads together as they were their own worst enemies.
Again, as with all historical drama one has to remind oneself that the details are not going to be accurate but Ms. Gregory does get her facts correct such as dates and places.
I did not want this book to end and I must admit that I reached for the Kleenex at its final scene. It was quite a journey.
A thoroughly enjoyable read.
