The repetitiveness. This is a problem that I'm noticing in more and more of Gregory's books. The same lines, descriptions, conversations are repeated over and over again. And after characters as strong and determined as Jacquetta, Margaret, and Elizabeth York, this Elizabeth was a bit of a letdown.
She never seemed to act. I know that she had very little power, but she was so complacent.
Since this was all from Elizabeth's point of view, I wish that more of the story could have reflected her life outside of Henry. I would have liked to hear more about her relationship with her children and with Maggie. It would have broken up the monotony of the "I've been forced to marry my enemy" repetitiveness.
Impatience, then disappointment because I thought there would be scenes between her and Katherine of Aragon.
