Customer Review

on 19 May 2010
Wow. This is the second book I have read by Tracy Borman in recent months, and I love her easy style. Despite having at least one other book on my shelf about Elizabeth, I was instantly caught up by this side of the story and spent the weekend with it glued to my hand - at one point my 2 year old daughter took it off me saying "my book!"... well, maybe one day! But it also brought home to me how the life of Elizabeth was shaped by losing her mother at such a young age - firstly to the tradition of the royal children having their own household - nursery and staff, houses and all - completely separate from their parents, and secondly from the actual death of her mother, thus losing the vital, interested party in seeing that she was clothed, fed, tutored... and then the nurse she had grown up with, who probably felt like a mother, was brusquely removed and given to her new brother, Edward! You can understand why she treasured loyalty and also why she probably exceptionally hard to please - so would you be if everyone you were attached to could be so easily taken away. Mother, nurse, stepmothers... What a life! And what a book.
