Elizabeth Fremantle's The Girl in the Glass Tower is a stunning historical thriller set in the chaos leading up to the death of Elizabeth I. (from publisher's description)
Filled with dense, dark political and social intrigue, this is five-star historical fiction (Daily Mail)
If you read one Tudor tome this summer, make it this one. Fascinating and vividly drawn, the ending is heartbreaking (The Times 'Book of the Month')
A top-notch literary thriller. Shots are fired, troths are plighted, sea voyages taken, escapes dared and mysteries solved (Daily Telegraph)
An eloquent novel, steeped in Tudor literary culture (Express)
Beautifully written, completely engrossing and a book that stays with you after the pages areclosed. Highly recommended (Historia)
An enthralling, powerful tale (Antonia Senior)
Arbella Stuart was a pawn, at the mercy of the powerful people around her. Hers is a sad and moving tale, and Fremantle tells it beautifully (History Girls)
Fremantle shows how dangerous it was being closely related to Elizabeth I. A cracking read (Prima)
A gorgeously readable and oh so captivating slice of historical fiction. Haunting, emotional and thought-provoking, The Girl in the Glass Tower is a beautiful foray into the past (Lovereading, 'Book of the Month')

The book showed the intrigue of the court and the people in power. No-one was a true friend or to be trusted and as Amelia found out it was easy to be banished from the court and left with nothing. really trust. Amelia found out how easy it was to be ousted from court, and left with nothing.
There were many interesting facts around the court and the times including how the ladies in waiting were expected to fund themselves and the – to us – unknown fact that anorexia existed in those times and is not merely a modern complaint.
Some of us found it difficult to follow as people were referred to very often by their title rather than their name which made it too impersonal. We thought Arbella’s life was rather sad. She was only of importance because of her links to the throne and once it was obvious that she would not become Queen she was cast aside.
The escape and the consequent happenings were interesting but we felt we would have liked to know more about what happened to Will Seymour. Most of us would like to read other work by this author and would probably recommend the book to others.
We scored this book 6.5 out of 10
I woild also have liked a mention at the end as to what happened to Will Seymour after he got to France, and when did he come back.
