Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is almost a book of two parts. It is fictional but based around the Elizabethan court. A young maid arrives at court bearing a resemblance to Queen Elizabeth. This is the story of how she negotiates through the perils of court life. At first I found it dull and laborious to read with even known historical characters seeming uninteresting and dull. Suddenly however my interest was captured and I found I was desperate to turn the pages. The unpredictable Elizabeth, the dark and sinister Walsingham and the charming Dudley seemed to leap from the pages. Kat Ashley and Mary Gray were ever court presences. The fictional characters of Nell and Gabriel held me spellbound and the fate of them really caught my imagination. I loved them. Although fictional the book really seemed believable and is well worth a read.
