Learning the history in a way that is so easy. I can't wait to get in my car to drive somewhere because I listen to this story. It is very well written, it flows, has intrigue, doesn't get hung up on lots of details, yet one learns many details woven into the fabric of the story. The dialogue is great!
William Stafford. He is level headed, loving, supportive.
No. I listen to it while driving.
I have listened to other books in the Philippa Gregory series and will listen to more. They are among the best historical fiction I have "read".
The order of story, jumping between three different time periods, was not enjoyable. I think J A Konrath has done this in previous books, but not to this extent. I listen to audio books while driving, in about 45 minute segments. It might take me 8-10 time periods to get through an audio book. I kept getting confused with where I was in the story. (The Jack Daniels character is one I know well as I have listened to all previous books, so I had a solid grasp of Jack's life. This still didn't help.)
I think I saw an option to listen to the book in chronological order. I would recommend that.
I still gave it 4 stars as I like the characters; they make me chuckle.
