Superb history of Elizabeth and Elizabethan England
3 January 2018
This is the definitive history of Elizabeth I, her life and times in England. The author has clearly left no historical stone unturned. Her thorough and comprehensive research has been put to good use in telling the life and times of such an iconic figure in English history. Whilst dense in detail the writer conveys both the glory and jeopardy of the period. She does not resort to romantic licence or create events that did not have historical evidence backing them up. It has taken me a long time to read it but I have savoured every chapter. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in the Elizabethan era. It puts so many political, cultural and religious issues in context and I feel I have a better understanding of England and the UK.
