really liked it

Even with some of the writing a bit slow and details about some events stretched to last pages, I did enjoy reading this. It is a wonderful fictional take on a strong woman in history that did what she needed to do to get by and eventually made a name for herself. Then, after fame from being an actress, to penitent woman, eventually to the highest female in a kingdom, loved it in that sense. I would recommend this to read.
I did take me a bit to get really into the book. The story line didn't exactly get moving until the middle of the book, but after that, I was hooked. Left a bit hanging at the end, but all in all, worth the time and effort.
