    In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. One woman hears the tidings with utter dread. Amy Dudley, wife of Sir Robert, knows that the bells she hears will summon her husband once more to power, intrigue, and a passionate love affair. Philippa Gregory paints a picture of a country on the brink of greatness, a young woman grasping at her power, a young man whose ambition is greater than his means, and the wife who cannot forgive them.

    I've listened to all of the COUSINS' WAR and loved the stories and preformances. There isn't anything negative that I can think of to say about that series.

    The Virgin's lover, is the 5th in the TUDOR series that I've listened to, and I'm REALLY struggling to get through it. It ususally only takes a week or less for me to finish a book, but I'm going into my 3rd week trying to finish this one - 2 hours left....ugh. I think the worst part of it for me is the narration. I'm not sure I want to put all the blame on Davina Porter, as I'm sure there is some type of direction. The narration of Elizabeth is extremely annoying and whinny. The other character narrations are honestly not much better and I really have a hard time staying focused. I also do not find the overall story very interesting, or at least not as interesting as the other 9 Philippa Gregory audio books that I've listened to. If you are like me and cannot skip one in a series, I'd say give it a try, but if it doesn't bother you to skip one, then I'd suggest not wasting your time.
