The book offers a credible insight into the life of a Tudor princess and the broken Tudor household. The life of Kat Ashley was put into in a position as precarious as that of her charge. Loyal Kat worked hard to support her mistress .Having read numerous books concerning the lives of all the Tudors the perspective of Elizabeth's life from some one as clcose as her governess was, indeed, most interesting. The imagined tour of the Tower of London was well thought out and disageeably frightening. Their consequent escape from such a place leaves me puzzled as to why Elizabeth never had the place cleared out and torture banned from England from that time onward. The book was well written and provided a good read.
