enjoyed listening to what could be a different side to what influence a queen of England.
The author easily conjured up the dangers of tudor England. Makes you wonder why anyone wanted to be at court! A great mixture of fact , filled in by imagination. The only thing I could have done without was the occasional Mills & Boon type moments, but these do not dominate & you can always fast forward! It is great girlie history & compelling listening!
