I found the rapid alternation between the three principle characters - Jane Boleyn, Anne of Cleves and Katherine Howard – to be a little distracting, but still you come to feel you know and understand them. It is an easy and entertaining read.

An enjoyable, easy read; the characters are believable and likeable, but you don’t really connect with any one in particular, perhaps because there are so many main characters. I wasn’t left wanting to know more about them as is often the case when finishing a really good book.

He does have a tendency to stop, and spend far more time than would seem really necessary describing the life of a minor character, before returning to the real story; which can be a little frustrating.

An odd book, more Arthurian adjacent than really to do with the legend. The story had its moments, but I found it rather slow in places. I never really found a connection with any of the characters, and probably the only word to describe finishing the book was relieved. Not a bad book, but I wouldn’t read it again.

I really enjoyed this book; prior to this the only books I had read about the period are The Other Boleyn Girl and The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregory, this book portrays a very different picture of the young Lady Elizabeth. The characters are engaging and believable, you feel for them and worry for them. It didn't matter that you knew how it would end, the story carried you along, always wanting to turn the next page.

The authors note reminds us that while most of the story is based on characters and events from historical record, it is a fictional book and explaining the dramatic license taken when dealing with certain issues.
