Different from the original in the series--the only repeat character is really King Henry VIII. I didn't connect to Nan, the main character, nearly as well as I did with Jane Popnycourt from the 1st book in the series. In the beginning, Nan's naivety and youthful snobbish attitude toward Cat & Ned were annoying and frustrating. Fortunately for the book's 3 star rating, Nan improved as a character around page 100 and I enjoyed it more and more from there. The time in Tudor Court wasn't as interesting to me as the first because Nan is young during King Henry VIII later years in life. I don't love that part of Tudor court as much as 1530's and such.

21.0% "I am surprised to find that this is not really a sequel to The Pleasure Place. The only consistent character is King Henry VIII. I'm not as connected to Nan as I was with Jeanne/Jane Popnycourt. Nan's youthful naivety is annoying and her relationship with her sister Cat and her love Ned is snobbish. It's difficult to relate to her. I'm waiting for Nan to grow up a little; I'm captivated though."
