Best-selling author Alison Weir turns her masterly storytelling skills to the early life of young Elizabeth Tudor, who would grow up to become England's most intriguing and powerful queen. Sweeping in scope, The Lady Elizabeth is a fascinating portrayal of a woman far ahead of her time - whose dangerous and dramatic path to the throne shapes her future greatness.

This book was captivating and interesting. I like this particular period in English history and have listened to a majority of these historical fiction books by Alison Weir and Philippa Gregory. This book is on par with the rest of this group. The reader is excellent and the story intriguing. I would highly recommend it.

The Boleyn Inheritance is a novel drawn tight as a lute string about a court ruled by the gallows and three women whose positions brought them wealth, admiration, and power - as well as deceit, betrayal, and terror. Once again, Philippa Gregory has brought a vanished world to life: the whisper of a silk skirt on a stone stair, the yellow glow of candlelight illuminating a hastily written note, the murmurs of the crowd gathering on Tower Green below the newly built scaffold.

This was a very enjoyable book to listen too. I was captivated by the different personalities and thoughts of the three main characters which were expressed so well by each reader. I would definitely recommend this audio book to a friend.

Experience the first Killashandra Ree adventure, in which the indomitable Killa overcomes disappointment in one career by diving into a much more exciting one. Filled with suspense, anguish, romance, and intrigue, this distinctive adventure is one of Anne McCaffrey's best.

This is by far the worst audio quality I have heard on any book I have downloaded. Not worth your money.
