2.0 out of 5 stars The battle of the window seat, and the tumbling curls, 7 Mar. 2014

This review is from: The Truth of the Line (Kindle Edition)
I think Melanie has worked hard on this book to reflect Elizabeth 1st and Nicholas as people and fit them into the times they knew . I didn't finish the book ( I normally do) because I was not sure I found the dialogue particularly riveting. See what you think with some pieces I have lifted between Elizabeth 1st and the artist Nicholas etc.

"Come." She rose and led the way to a bay window where she sat down and and patted the space next to her indicating, that he sit. Her green silk gown rustled as she move. And from the worthy monarch a bit later on " ..come and sit down next to me " Elizabeth patted the window seat turned and looked out of the window contemplating the park..

Two pats of the seat before Nicholas got the message ?

And later .."Nicholas approached, bowed took ( the Queen's) hand and kissed it. Her hand cream was scented with attar of roses. He wished he could hold her hand longer and take deep breaths of that lovely scent of summer "

And another piece with a different lady "Alice smoothed an imaginary crease from the fold of her skirt with an immaculately manicured hand. She look up and smiled a shy little smile. Nicholas noticed how the blue of her gown matched the blue of her eyes and set off the soft pale gold of her hair. Soft curls tumbled down her back and wisps of hair softened the outline of her face."

So if you like this type of dialogue and interaction ...this could be the book for you.
