My least favorite of the Philippa Gregory Tudor series - but still fascinating, and well written.

I enjoy historical fiction and thought I would give this book a try. I found it extremely flat and not very entertaining. Catalina comes across as shallow and one-dimensional. Her character is never truly, deeply developed. Even the writing is flat and so repetitive. If Catalina would have said that she will be Queen of England one more time, I would have burst into tears. I also found the italicized personal thoughts that are sprinkled randomly throughout the story very distracting and they did not move the story forward. I didn't finish the book...too many other books waiting on my shelf...so maybe it gets better towards the end. I might try another Philippa Gregory book but this one was not for me.

All the richness and history I have come to expect from this author. She never disappoints.

The most boring of Gregory's book. If you are interested in war details, this may be to your liking, but it was not nearly as interesting as her other books. Focused less on love and more on war.
