This is excellent. Ms. Fraser deals diplomatically, compassionately, but never sentimentally with these six remarkable and extremely different women. I came away respecting Catherine of Aragon and Anna of Cleves the most, but I don't think the author has any bias, herself. The illustrations are lovely, too.
