bookshelves: european-monarchy, elizabeth-1
Recommended for: Those who like HF but don't require accuracy
Read in September, 2006 — I own a copy , read count: 1

The historical part of this story is not very believable I give a 2 however the enjoyment factor ofthe story I give a 4 making it a 3....? I enjoyed it but did not believe it. I learned long ago to seperate the two because I'm not a historical scholor nor a literary snob but I "like what I like" and my historical FICTION does not have to be always spot on accurate I'm smart enough not to believe anything that is in the FICTION realm. Some authors should not call themselves historians however! I'm not making any sense am I? Well sorry.... if you want an enjoyable story loosely dealing with the Life of Elizabeth 1 and THIS authors view of her life then this is it...however if you want ACCURACY...then look elsewhere! That summed it fact it seems to be a running theme with Maxwells books ...ENJOYABLE to read but NOT FACTUAL.
