Kimberly Ann (auntie-nanuuq) | 753 comments His Last Letter Elizabeth I and the Earl of Leicester by Jeane Westin

His Last Letter, Jeane Westin

Minus

1/2 ★, maybe even a minus

Well, it started out as a good idea... but then it got involved & the author lost the time & place and the language changed to modern day rot.

I do enjoy historical fiction, especially about 1500's, but this was so far off base. The author took blatant liberties w/ the personages & the non-fiction accounts in order to make up a fantastical "romance", which rang so far false, that it was a shameful sham.

I'm pretty sure that "sweetheart" just wasn't a part of courtly vocabulary... and much of the dialog had a 20th/21st century style....

In this book she called him "Rob"? Really? No Way in Hell.... She asked him to murder Mary Stuart while he was in his bed? No Way in Hell. That Dudley took Elizabeth's virginity? Ah, ha, ha, ha,ha....

Wow this author has one hell of an active imagination.

Thankfully it was a fast, albeit, boring read and it knocked off one more book from my TBR
