I had read about this when it was hardback but only bought it now in paperback. The reviews made it sound a fascinating story of court intrigue and I was not let down when I finally read it. Nicola Shulman who obviously has a passion for this subject has managed to interweave many strands into Graven with Diamonds. Not only is it a story of Thomas Wyatt, who many of us have heard of but know nothing much about, but it shows the power that words can have, literally in matters of life and death. For anyone who wants to know more about the workings of the Tudor Court this is a fascinating insight and her analysis of Wyatt's work is always illuminating and never predictable.
