Publishers should start to pay more attention to the details when publishing Kindle editions. And Amazon should be applying pressure to get them to do so.
This is an accessible and yet detailed book that gives a view into the society that doesn't fill the famous histories, that of women. Well worth a read if you have a general interest in history. A definite read if you are interested in Tudor times.
Women may have had limited life options compared today, but not as restrictive as it would seem. Running households, like anytime in history, is like running a business and in some cases women were running major businesses and making significant decisions financial and political. I will be rereading it soon.
It is not novel by any stretch of the imagination.
It is a good list of facts of tudor lives and times but it is not something to relax with over a cup of tea and cake.
It was very informative and written in an easy to read style.
Get the cocoa on, get the fire lit and spend Sunday with your feet up and this book

Both the jacket notes and the text repeatedly refer to the "lavish" illustrations. There is not a one! Hugely frustrating, and I feel like I've been short changed. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Bromide Badger
