really liked it
Read in June, 2009

Sort of a beach read for those interested in history and political intrigue. It's beachy in the sense that I read it in a couple of days and found it entertaining enough that I didn't want to put it down. It's also beachy in that it's sort of history-lite; if you're looking for detailed historical drama, this isn't it. Does Phillipa Gregory do that sort of thing? I really liked the narrator, Elizabeth's seamstress. She was spunky (actually rather modern in her sensibilities) and sensible.
