A glorious tale, Elizabeth Tudor lives again......,
By A Customer
This review is from: Legacy (Paperback)
Elizabeth Tudor led a turbulent early life, losing her closest relatives and friends to the axe, she was imprisoned by her sister, Queen Mary, and many times feared for her own life. Early in childhood she was introduced to Robert Dudley and they formed a strong bond that was to last until his death. This is the glorious story of Queen Elizabeth I and the men who served her.
Detailed, moving and highly entertaining this is one of the best novels I have read in a long time. From the first page to the last the book is utterly gripping. Bold characters, passionate scenes, violence and heartbreak, the whole range of human emotions leaps off each page. Portrays Elizabeth as a real person, with real feelings, instead of the two-dimensional character she is sometimes shown as.
A glorious tale, very well told. My only wish is that more historical fiction was as good as this. One of the best novels on the Virgin Queen.
