4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tudor mystery! Enjoyable to the end., 11 Jun 2001
This review is from: The Robsart Mystery (Elizabethan Whodunnit) (Paperback)
Although The Robsart Mystery does not focus solely on the story of Amy Robsart, it does offer reasonable explanations of unresolved situations and relationships within the court of Elizabeth I. The main thread through the book is the story of Ursula Blanchard - lady of the Queen's presence chamber - who embarks on a journey that will change her life. The journey begins with her request, by Elizabeth, to protect the life of Amy Robsart. Rumours of a love affair between Elizebeth and Robert Dudley are rife in court. Mixed with accusations of Dudley trying to poison Amy so he can marry the queen, tantamount to a rather worried Elizaebth who must ensure her crown and reputation is protected. Ursula becomes the faithful friend to Amy and when she inevitably dies, Ursula is determined to find out the truth. However, this determination is pushed even further by the sudden death of someone else close to Ursula. This unprecedented attack spurs Ursula on a trail of love, hate and determination to find the killers. Her journey leads to some shocking discoveries about the people she thought she knew and her faith and loyalty are put into doubt. I found The Robsart Mystery story intriguing and full of suspense. Above all, it was great to see such a strong lead female character who almost overshadowed the queen herself!
