Eek. I really hated this book. She turned a very strong heroine into nothing at the end. I don't care that it may be historically accurate, I found it to be irritating and barely finished it. If I could have slapped our "hero" I sure would have. What a jerk! She has so much and gives it all up because she is "in love." Ick, ick, ick.
Wonderful book, a little bit slow at first, but then the story really got going and really drew me in and it was like I was transported into the time of King Henry the 8th. The physical description of the scenery and the storyline is wonderful and I loved the ending. I highly recommend this and can't wait to read other Jane Feather books!!
What else can possibly be said about Jane Feather's writing? It is simply wonderful. Feather fans won't be disappointed in this story which begins in Derbyshire, England, 1536.
Typical Feather novel. Very entertaining. First class romance and rich characters. Historical background and intelligent writing about times when a king's favor could mean your life.
Decent story. Some interesting settings used here, like Hugh's house in London. Most children in romance novels I find to be annoying, but Guinevere's two daughters were well-written and added a lot to the story.
