The King’s Damsel follows the story of Tamsin Lodge from the point of her losing her father and brother -through to her time in the Tudor court. It was refereshing to see Tamsin’s dedication to Princess Mary and all the work and personal sacrifces she made in the court in order to help Princess Mary, rather then to advance her self. It’s a fairly fast and easy read, I found the ending wrapped up pretty quickly and felt very rushed. I feel Emerson could have spent more time in the last few chapters rather then quickly skimping through them. In comparison to her books from the “Secrets of the Tudor Court” the writing in this book was off. As much as I Iiked the character of Tamsin, I found the book didn’t have as much life to it as her others did. I am not sure if it’s because most of the story was merely fiction based on a letter from the Spanish Ambassador Chapuys in reference to an unknown “King’s damsel”, but not one of my favourite books by Emerson. Good – but not her best.
