I've never written a review on Amazon prior to this, but, well. I struggled with "The Tudor Wife", finding it so unrealistic it was almost laughable, but given the low price of this, I felt I should give the author another go, as I love historical novels from this period.
The central character of Jane Grey is so unrealistic and unbelievable, and from my limited reading on this family, her interpretation of the rest is equally incredible. I really, really wanted to like this book, but the ridiculous Guildford and co, and the inclusion of yet another random affair for which there doesn't seem to be any need, made it virtually unreadable. The only character I could really believe acted the way he is written was Northumberland, with his scheming and plotting.
I hate to have to sound so negative, but if you want a good set of Tudor novels, which at least make an attempt to be realistic, stick with Philippa Gregory and co...

Dull and repetitive. if I had read about one more piece of embroidery or the individual flowers that made up a bouquet i would have screamed.

I would accept that the historical background is probably authentic, but for my taste it is over-written with much emphasis on detailed description of fabrics and decoration; also (worryingly, for me) on the sado-masochistic element and the physical handicap of little Lady Mary. The possible insights into the character of Lady Jane were interesting

I did not like the prologue but once that was read, the novel was a super read, written from the unusual perspective of Lady Jane Greys youngest sister, the historically ignored Lady Mary Grey. Life in the 16th century was not easy for woman of noble birth, many of whom lived, and died, at the whims of men and the monarch. Mary Tudor actually comes across as likeable in this tale, a juxtaposition to the usual 'BloodyMary' and it gives the impression that she did not want to execute Jane and Guildford, realising they were innocent pawns but was forced to by her absent husband, Philip of Spain because she wanted him to love her.
Highly recommended for all Tudoe history followers.

I'm not sure who told this author she could write - nor am I sure why I actually bought this book, having ploughed through a couple if her other books.
The character of Lady Jane Grey in this book is appalling. Her Father is utterly cringeworthy and Guildford Dudley is just plain embarrassing.
I think someone should sit this author down, go through the Tudor timeline with her and then make her promise to never EVER write another book on this period again.
Awful awful awful awful awful

Not as good as I thought it would be. If you want to know about the fashion of the day in great detail together with all the gems that went into them then this is the book for you. For me there was not enough story to it.

A more personal account jog the lives and lives of 3 sisters whose lives were bound up with the Tudor dynasty. A good readable book.
