    It is winter, 1553. Pursued by the Inquisition, Hannah Green, a 14-year-old Jewish girl, is forced to flee Spain with her father. But Hannah is no ordinary refugee. Her gift of "Sight," the ability to foresee the future, is priceless in the troubled times of the Tudor court. Hannah is adopted by the glamorous Robert Dudley, the charismatic son of King Edward's protector, who brings her to court as a "holy fool" for Queen Mary and, ultimately, Queen Elizabeth.

    Teddy says: "Pitch Perfect Narration With a Great Story"
    "Not Up to Gregory's Standard's"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, but I'm retired and have time to spend listening while I do the things I do. Gregory's tales usually captivate me and take me back into the time and era, this story just fell short. Perhaps I just know too much about the actual lives of Catherine, Elizabeth and Dudley; but I just could not buy into this one.


    Has The Queen's Fool turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Bianca Amato’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She's just good!


    Was The Queen's Fool worth the listening time?

    so so
