ENGLAND- Henry VIII is crowned. His sister, Mary Tudor, is even more elevated by his favor. He promised her that they could stay together in their childhood, but signed off the beautiful, young, willful, temperamental princess to be married to fifty-two-year-old King Louis of France for an alliance. She left on one condition: when the king died, she would get to marry someone of her own choice. Little did he know that she had a particular someone in mind…

This kept me reading because of the suspense and the lushly, richly drawn characters, and because it’s a novel of Tudor history. It explores a character not much drawn upon in historical fiction. While not quite as addictive as Gregory’s work, Haeger’s keeps any Tudor-lover reading.
