I read this first as a teenager, then discovered it is part of a series which I have now read all of.
All the Philippa Carr books follow the women of one family. Each book is a different generation, and though the characters are fictional, the backdrop and events they experience are historical.
This book is set in the time of Cromwell
These books are my favorites of all the Victoria Holt titles
Daughter of England book 4 is about twins that are no way alike in temperment just looks.Angelet is gentle and mild and weds first and Bersaba is dark and devious. All the deep secrets at Far Flamstead could separate her from her sister she has always loved.
