The great thing about Philippa Gregory is that you can pick up a book of hers without even reading the description and know that you'll enjoy it - which is pretty much what I did with this one. I was familiar with Lady Jane Grey, and vaguely familiar with the other two sisters, but this was a great story that brought them to life. Philippa Gregory seems to not be a fan of Elizabeth (none of her novels look on her very kindly) but in this one, her characters' dislike for her definitely seemed warranted. I was a little doubtful about the characterization of Jane as both snooty and a "Protestant martyr," but it did make for a compelling story. The book also did repeat some things over and over - how many times, and how many different ways, can you say that Katherine was Elizabeth's rightful heir, and that Elizabeth was vain and mean? But, despite this, I couldn't put it down.
