it took me a long time to get into this book but it's worth persevering to watch Eleanor's character develop and to find the explanation in the last chapter. at the Beginning Eleanor is so self centred and selfish but had to laugh as some of those selfish thoughts they may have crossed my own mind at times. it was funny when she used the hand sanitizer at the hospital to make sure she didn't catch any germs from the patients!. as the story unfolded I got more and more involved. both tragic and heartwarming.. brilliantly read

fascinating

tells the little-known story of Margaret older sister of Henry VIII and queen of Scotland . a little hard to get used to initially as it is told in the first person and Margaret is portrayed as having a selfish and waspish character. in the end though I grew too admire her and find her amusing and endearing. she stays in so many Scottish castles and is besieged in some, prisoner in others and escapes from one to another. Very exciting especially when she is 8 months pregnant!

loved this series

But I found this book harder to get into and found it difficult to concentrate on the long dialogues. Was more drawn in as the book progressed. Having said that I am distraught that the tale of the Tudor lawyer has come to an end . Matthew Shardlake and his friends have been my constant companions for the last few months. Please Mr Sansom, write some more!
Brilliantly read by Stephen Crossley

One of his earlier books and in my opinion one of the best. An eye for detail and a likeable hero draw you in very quickly. Can't think why other listeners didn't enjoy it.

Brilliantly read by Patience Tomlinson. A gripping and very vivid if somewhat depressing tale .

Didn't realise I had already heard it on R4 but still enjoyed it. The romantic and cultural histories of the old principalities that made up present day Germany really came to life.
