In general I love historical fiction. I love well written biographies. I was hoping for something of both in this. It started with possibility but quickly degenerated into a list of events, with very small personal scenes thrown in at random. Well written historical fiction makes you care about the characters, makes you feel like you are there (the smells, the textures). This book has none of that depth or interest. I made it about half way through and decided it wasn't worth the time to complete. The narration was well done, I would be willing to listen to her again. But I've taken Philippa Gregory off my wish list. And I was so hopeful.
Really enjoy the story and the narration. It's not earth shattering and many of the premise were historical fantasy standards. But the way it was all wrapped up was fun and entertaining. I'll definitely re-listen again down the road.
