The narration. Alison Larkin's narration is outstanding. I am a fan of this particular period in British history and Ms Emerson's work is well researched. The story was kept moving by the first class narrator. I'll be seeking this narrator out.
The portrayal of Henry the Eighth! Not as a monster, but as a real, sensual, life-loving man.
An intelligence, clarity and life in her characterizations that bring these historical figures to life. Especially King Henry!
It wasn't a particularly moving story. More an interesting one. That is why I couldn't give the book five stars.
