An excellent historically acurate (though with fictional conversations) about the Tudor Mary, sister of Henry VIII, who married the King of France and planned her future in an age when women had no power or control over their destiny. Good insight into the court and times.

The youngest sister of Henry VIII, pampered and innocent, is sent to become the wife of the aged King of France.

This is a quite interesting read about Mary Tudor whose lifelong love of Charles Brandon eclipsed all other parts of her life. His reputation as a womanizer and his two earlier marriages did not faze this determined woman who was infatuated with him at a very young age. As the story unfolds and her French husband dies, she turns to Brandon who discovers that he, too, loves her.

This is a tale of two individuals who are certainly destined to spend their lives together. Never mind that Mary's royal background makes her a political pawn. With her French marriage she had extracted a promise from her brother that her next husband will be of her choosing. So it is even as her brother plans another political marriage. Brandon and Mary marry and give whatever they can to her brother.

Also enjoyed the delightful, flowing writing of this talented author. While this novel is short and could possibly have been extended by including more detail, I totally enjoyed the read.
