Jean Plaidy, one of the preeminent authors of historical fiction for most of the twentieth century, is the pen name of the prolific English author Eleanor Hibbert, also know as Victoria Holt. Jean Plaidy's novels had sold more than 14 million copies worldwide by the time of her death in 1993.

Product Description

Review

"Her novels are still very much to be enjoyed ... Any writer who can both educate and thrill a reader of any age deserves to be remembered and find new fans ... One only has to look at the TV/Media to see that the appetite for this kind of writing is still very much there" (Matt Bates WH Smith Travel)

"Jean Plaidy doesn't just write the history, she makes it come alive." (Julia Moffat, RNA)

"Jean Plaidy, by the skilful blending of superb storytelling and meticulous attention to authenticity of detail and depth of characterisation has become one of the country's most widely read novelists." (Sunday Times)

"These books are page-turners; they offer a wonderful way to learn about history, their heroines are smart, strong and in control of their destinies and their stories will remain with you for ever...They are a celebration of women's spirit throughout history." (Daily Express)

"Full-blooded, dramatic, exciting" (Observer)

Book Description

The tenth novel in Jean Plaidy's Tudor series - the passionate story of Elizabeth I's love affair with Robert Dudley.

Format: Paperback
I love this era in history but was really dissapointed by this book. It pails in comparison to Phillipa Gregory's 'The Virgin's Lover' based on the same subject. There is little character development & events happen so suddenly and with negligable impact, for example the execution of Mary Queen of Scots. However, it is very historically accurate, at times so much that it felt like non-fiction book. To me it felt like Plaidy wrote it half heartedly & in a bit of a rush.

Format: Paperback
A very addictive read and an interseting portrayal of the protagonists. Queen Elizabeth is portrayed through her strength as a queen but also as a woman with an unrelenting love for her Lord Leicester. Definitely worth a read. If you like this then 'Queen of this Realm' is most definitely up your street.

This is the first Jean Plaidy I have read and having studied renaissance literature I was a bit wary. But it was a lovely read. The characterisation of Elizabeth and Robert Dudley bristled with unrequited love and it incorporated historically accurate elements to satisfy the historian in me. I will definitely read other books by Plaidy and in this series in particular.

Format: Paperback
Set in Tudor times, this Jean Plaidy novel tells the story of Elizabeth I's love affair with the married Lord Robert Dudley and the intrigue that surrounds it.

The story once again portrays the dangerous times of Tudor England and like all other of Jean Plaidy's books very difficult to put down once you start reading it.

Format: Paperback
with a book about elizabeth I and robert dudley you would think would be full of passion and excitement but this one is very clinical in its dealings with the relationship. the feelings they had for each other doesnt really fly of the page at you as like in previous books when henry was dealing with his wives. a very detailed account but without any emotion. but does leave the door open for the next 2 books about mary queen of scots as plaidy introduces certain events but doesnt go into them in much detail.

Why has this Been renamed? Do they think people are too simple minded to know that gay also means happy? For those that don't know the authors title for this was Gay Lord Robert. I find it insufferable that our language has been mucked around with!
