5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting viewpoint of The Tudor Court, 14 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Secrets of the Tudor Court (Paperback)
This book is brilliant for anyone who enjoyed 'The Other Boleyn Girl' or any of Philippa Gregory's novels. It looks at the life of the daughter of Mary Howard, daughter of the Duke of Norfolk, and cousin to Anne Boleyn.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as I've read a lot about the Tudors, in both fiction and non-fiction books, but I've never read one told from the viewpoint of Mary Howard, and found it fascinating. The author's portrayal of the Duke of Norfolk, and his relationship with his daughter, is hauntingly emotional, and I found this stayed with me a long time after I finished this book.
Another thing I loved about this book was the brilliant continuity - this book literally follows the life of Mary Howard, right through the reign of Henry VIII and all the ups and downs of his court, and includes the reign of Henry's son Edward, and daughter Mary.
I also loved how the character of Henry Fitzroy was explored, as his role in the Tudor court was a strange but interesting one, and it was so interesting to look at this through the eyes of his wife and childhood friend.

Anyone who has enjoyed the TV series The Tudors, or any of the popular Tudor novels, will find this a slightly different, but still really interesting take on life at the Tudor Court.
