really liked it
Read from December 12 to 31, 2011

This is a well written historical story with pieces of history and fiction cleverly woven about a character in our history that is less well known.

It was a very good read that sparked an interest in this intereging woman. it draws upon some stereotypes of Princess Elizabeths father James I, and we can see the character of the ill fated Charles I being shaped as a spoilt child.

The only critism I have of it is that it was slightly too long about 2/3s in I felt it kind of repeated itself; I found myself wanting the next part of Elizabeth's life to happen however the last 100 pages or so made up for it.

Although Dickenson is no Philipa Gregory she is however alot better than some other historical fiction writers out there.

Not a reread but I am glad I did read it!
