I haven't really liked much of this book. The narrator is one of the worst ever. When we listened to book four we at least had the man who changed up his voice and had an interesting accent (except his voice for Simon, which was horrible) but this narrator had no depth or emotion. You should go back to the second book narrator. Also we want to scream every time she says Steelie!!! Doesn't the author listen to the Audiobook ever?
Not sure-it's gotten pretty boring!
I really enjoyed the story and how it unfolded. Tended to have too much description
I was very sad and frustrated at the end of this novel - is it really the last one? Don't get me wrong the story and the narration were wonderful but the Court of King Henry the VIII was a world of suspicion and mistrust and to kill children for the fact that they were born sons and daughters of Kings makes me ill. Phillippa Gregory outdid herself in conveying what it would be like to be born to a royal family who has fallen out of favour and showed remarkable insight into what it would be like to fall so far from grace yet never lose sight of where you started and she brought to life the nuances of fear and determination that Margaret Pole would have had to cling to to stay alive all those years. According to Phillipa's vision of Margaret she was a strong, determined, narcissistic, selfish and intelligent woman who if not for the turbulence of King Henry's whims and changes of law to allow those whims would have potentially been the matriarch of the next Royal family. Thanks Phillippa for bringing it to life yet again.
