I'm joining up with Art @ Home's fantastic "What We're Reading" linky party, on the 20th of every month. Yay!
Of all England's monarchs, Henry VIII is one of the most well-known. Following him, of course, we know about Queen Elizabeth, and Queen Mary. But what about Edward, and their cousin Lady Jane Grey? Weir jumps right into the details of their lives, from birth onward. She holds nothing back- not the cruelty bestowed on the female heirs at varying interludes, nor their usage as pawns as they grew.
I'm only a handful of pages into it, but already I am captivated by the level of detail Weir includes. As a lover of Renaissance history, I can't wait to continue this book!
