I was really interested in this book after I heard the author talk on NPR about his ancestor and finally managed to get it when I was reading biographies of queens (and mistresses). Nell makes for an interesting read. Beauclerk's writing is not as strong as many biographies, but it is clear he respects what Nell accomplished and is proud to have her as a forebearer.
