I liked the way the past and present combined to make this a very good book. Narration was excellent too. I will be reading more of this author's work.

I am so used to Jane Seymour depicted as a mousy biddable character. She wasn't! This story gives a new angle showing she was just as ambitious as Ann Boleyn. In fact she played a huge part in Ann's downfall. i enjoyed the story but didn't like the narrator's different accents. It actually spoiled the book for me.

Strange subject

I got lost along the way and lost interest in this convoluted plot. Too many strange characters for my taste. I picked it up again and was able to get back into the story. Didn't like the writing as there were too many cliches for my taste. Richard's narration was excellent which was what encouraged me to listen to the end. Sorry, maybe her next book will be better.

I am loving Toby Clements writing and Jack Hawkins' narration is perfect. Looking forward to book 4.

Really enjoyed all the trials and tribulations of Thomas and Catherine. Can't wait to listen to the next one. I was pleased to hear that in this book the Scots were properly labelled. Narration again, excellent. Thank you Mr Clements.

Wonderful.

Totally engrossing. Didn't want it to end but couldn't wait to find out what happened. I was deeply involved with the story - wonderful believable characters and battle scenes which were so vivid I was there. Jack Hawkins narration was just perfect. Very moving. Can't wait to hear part two.
