A Terrific Read
As an avid fan of Ms. Weir's highly informative and greatly readable histories, I was eager to read this book of the young Queen's early life. I was not disappointed. The characters jumped from the page, and what history has not conveyed, Ms. Weir has skillfully woven into her fiction. The places, the times, the living, and the people all came to life for me in this vivd novel. While reading it, my favorite time of the day was hunkered down, late at night, where I could read and fully savor this book uninterrupted. A terrific read!

A Good Read, Historically Sound
I have read a lot about this time period, both fiction and non-ficton and I found this book to be very well done in many ways. Alison Weir does a very good job of keeping the story accurate while still making the book pleasantly readable and entertaining. She really doesn't take many liberties with the historical accuracy- and why should she? This time period is juicy enough for anyone. I find this to be a very interesting point of view- you learn some about each of Henry's wives, yet it is still centered around Elizabeth and her early years. In addition, the work is very well written. I like her style of writing significantly better than Phillipa Gergory, her writing in general is significantly better. I am not saying this is a Pulitzer (thus the 4 starts), but it is very well done.

Pleasant diversion from modern life
I enjoyed this book. The language was sufficiently antiquated, and the story line was interesting, both of which made for easy and pleasant immersion into this world of no TV or Internet. Whether or not some or all of it is true was inconsequential to me. I am not a historian, just someone who reads books for enjoyment and relaxation.
