Trite, redundant and boring. This is probably one of the worst books I have ever read.

Scott repeats herself continually throughout the novel, as if her reader would not remember what happened just three chapters before.

Sarah Churchill is shown as headstrong and independent juxtaposed against whiny and jealous behavior. Not a likeable (even if real) character at all. She needed to be one or the other, not both.

Churchill's lesbian relationship with Princess Anne is not believable and something I think Scott just put into the mix to maybe keep the reader's attention.

Unfortunately, my mind is not any better for reading this book.

Overall, I would not reccommend this book all. 1/2 star out of 5. It's that bad.
