This was my 1st audio cd set, and I have never "read" Philippa Gregory before...I thoroughly enjoyed both. I love history and her take on this real moment in time was captured brilliantly. The narrorator speaks in a British accent making the story very enjoyable to listen too since it made it much more believeable for me and easy to get into than I think an American voice would have been. I highly recommend this Audio cd to history (especially Elizabethen (SP?) buffs. Happy Listening :)

The Virgin's Lover is the love story of Queen Elizabeth and Robert Dudley. I expected the story to focus mainly on Elizabeth but surprisingly it was more about Robert. It gave a very detailed look into the small group of intimates in Elizabeth's life and the hardship she had in the war between being a queen and being a woman.

I really got lost in the story.

I think it was a good book and well written. I think a very important thing to remember when reading this book is that it is fiction. The story is based on people who actually existed but veers off from there. Ms. Gregory did her research (check her sources in the back of the book) and formulated her own version of Elizabeth's life. I didnt like how weak and wishy washy Elizabeth was but the story was very interesting none the less. It pulled me in, I was rooting for Elizabeth and Dudley for part of the book and hating them the next. I even gasped out loud at the ending.
