5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing history to life, 5 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Children Of England: The Heirs of King Henry VIII 1547-1558 (Paperback)
Having previously read 6 wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir, was keen to continue the story and was not disappointed. This is another excellent book. Alison Weir appraises all the relevant data available and puts it together in a way that is very credible, fascinating and enjoyable. She adds modern day interpretations e.g. possible medical explanations for the 'pregnancies' experienced by Mary which are fascinating in themselves and she also gives a great insight into the political intrigue and alliances that were so important to life in those days. The book is thoroughly readable and is multifaceted in ensuring that the reader understands the political, social, economic and health aspects in that time which had their own influences on events. Having been thoroughly bored by history at school, it is writers like Alison Weir who bring it to life and make it so compelling. Now just to decide which one to read next....which has to be Elisabeth The Queen.
