Great narrative of an often overlooked period of history. Really enjoyed the content and narration.
I love Tudor history, and have since I was a child. I was very excited to find a book about the mysterious Jane Boleyn. After listening, I realized that I still haven't found that book. This book covers the lives and circumstances of the main players well, and Jane is an occasional side note. Nothing new on her marriage, motivations, heck even what she is accused of doing is not fully explored.
This book presented a different perspective on Juana, and offered new information. Would recommend to any history buffs.
As someone who has read extensively on the Tudor dynasty, I actually enjoyed the different perspective that this book offered, which was overwhelming negative about the whole lot of the family. It is not unusual to find books that condemn the behavior of Henry (VII and VIII) and Mary, but this book calls to the carpet, so to speak, the actual ramifications of the reign of Gloriana (admittedly one of my childhood heros), both during her lifetime and after. It seems well-researched and while negative, fair in it's analysis of the facts presented.
