liked it

Jane Dunn provides a very insightful, parallel look into the lives of these two incredibly fascinating women. If you want to feel a little "female pride," I strongly recommend reading any books about these two women - particularly Elizabeth.
I had read several books about Elizabeth already - and I think that Alison Weir and others have a better writing style - but I liked Dunn's focus on interaction between the two queens. The biggest drawback was that Dunn rambles on quite a bit and repeats the same idea or concept ad nauseum. The book is about 1/4 repetition, both within and across chapters. Otherwise, an educational read.
