I rather enjoyed this book. It was interesting to learn about Henry VIII's sister whom I knew little about. Margret is a strong and determined woman who makes some bad choices base on emotion. The book it self is well writen and easy to get into. I would recomend it to anyone who likes Tudor history.

Enjoyable story of Margaret Tudor, older sister to Henry VII and wife of James IV of Scotland. I knew little about this woman and Plaidy crafted another engaging story that has me eager to learn more about Margaret.

Many of Jean Plaidy's other books are better. The facts were good, but the story was week. Almost like reading a long encycolpedia article.

I have read most of these books by Plaidy and this was my least favorite. It is not a very good story. Marriage, difficult pregnancy, husband cheating, then repeat all of this a few more times. Not a horrible book just not a favorite of mine.
