Like the other books I've listened to written by Ms. Weir, this was yet another example of excellent research matched with interesting bits of information about the time and culture in which she narrates the character's life. Wonderful listening.
What can one say about such a subject, written by such an excellent writer as Alison Weir. Ms. Weir puts so much more into the story, rather than simply regurgitating historical information that can be gleaned from an encyclopedia. Good show!
I'm looking for more of Alison Weir's books. She has a rare talent; something not to be taken lightly.
This is the first time I've listened to a "historical" book. This experience was very educational and enjoyable; a story about real people, albeit in history.
I have started amassing a collection of this type of audible book. Real life experiences are very interesting, especially when taken from the point of view of the historical period in time.
