If you are interested in the life of the legendary Queen of England this is a must read! It is written from Elizabeth's perspective and covers her entire life. Although this is a work of fiction there is enough historical fact to make this book an historical learning experience. This one is hard for me to part with!

Excellent and well-researched novel! This is a first-person fictional account of the life of Queen Elizabeth I of England. I think anyone interested in historical fiction would be interested in reading this book and especially if you have an interest in royal history or the Tudors/Elizabethan times.

This book is not for the casual fan of English history. I found myself at times trudging through the book. There were a lot of names and it was confusing to me. There were enjoyable parts, and I finished the book. I think I'll stick to Philippa Gregory's books though when it comes to English Historical Fiction.

Excellent book! Very rick in story and characters. It moves fast in the first half of the book but by the time she becomes queen the story slows down. Rosalind Miles is a great author.

The author had great voice as Elizabeth. I also enjoyed that the book covered her full life when many books I've read end as she becomes queen.
