5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning achievement, 26 Nov. 2015
I was spellbound by this beautifully produced book. This is how historical writing should be: well-paced, engaging, packed with fascinating detail and soundly researched. Elizabeth Norton writes a captivating narrative, drawing the reader into the world of the Tudors, evoking it so compellingly, and arguing her conclusions convincingly. I can't praise it highly enough. It's stunning - the best history book I've read in a long time.

Totally useless. Will not stick onto a plastic surface, and will not adhere to the opposite piece. A waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious - but not the new recipe, 20 May 2015
I love V8 - I drink two glasses daily. If you buy it in this packaging, you'll be getting the original recipe. But recently they have changed the packaging for V8 original - and the recipe too. I've emailed them about it, and they say the recipe hasn't changed. If that's true, why is the colour lighter in every new carton I've bought, why does it taste more of tomato, sugar and salt, and why has it lost the bite that set it apart from tomato juice? I am doing my best to buy it in its old-style carton, but when those are no longer available, I'll probably just buy tomato juice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical fiction at its best!, 21 Jan. 2015
If you liked Shardlake, you will love this exciting new series of novels set in the turbulent age of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and Thomas Cromwell, and effortlessly underpinned by the brilliant scholarship for which Derek Wilson is renowned. We feel we are really there, in an authentically evoked Tudor London, hot on the trail of a real-life murder mystery. This is one of the best page-turners I have read in ages. Highly recommended! I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.


How Far to Bethlehem?

5.0 out of 5 stars If you read one book for Christmas, make it this one!, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How Far to Bethlehem? (Paperback)
I return to this book nearly every year - it's a beautifully realised re-telling of the Christmas story, recounted in Norah Lofts's inimitable fashion. Moving and thoughtful, it treats its subject with imagination and respect.
