It's a girl!,
This review is from: Sweet Swan of Avon: Did a Woman Write Shakespeare? (Hardcover)
This is a wonderful read! Robin Williams takes us on a centuries old thrill ride, connecting the long-faded dots and allowing us to experinece the physical, cultural and emotional landscape that surrounded the author of the works attributed to William Shakespeare. It doesn't matter one bit whether or not you like Shakespeare, are interested in Elizabethan literature, or have ever heard of Mary Sidney, Countess of Pembroke. By the end of the book you'll be convinced you've just be let in on a monumental secret, locked away for hundreds of years.
Robin reveals the truth slowly, without lecturing or forcing the reader to accept her personal opinions. She does it with well documented facts, given to you in a long conversation that leaves you feeling immersed in the life of the most fascinating woman of her times, Mary Sidney. You'll be amazed!
