I d go on, but surely I ve said enough.
This book is ROYALLY irritating Carolly Erickson is a distinguised historian turned popular novelist I would have hoped the simple task of getting the right order and personage of Catherine Parr s multiple marriages could have been achieved The lack of getting even these basic facts straight really bothered me in the beginning of the book However, trying to keep in mind that it is simply a work of fiction helped me read through it for the most part The truth could have been stranger, and entertaining than fiction I would have given it 4 stars and I think that is being very generous IF the author had kept at least the outline of the historical facts correct Not to mention the complete void of any mention of Lady Jane Grey So, minus one star for lack of facts and minus a star for lack of the 9 Day Queen

Very, very bland Somehow Erickson made the Tudors boring, which I didn t think was possible.
This is one of my favorite Carolly Erickson books Although like all of her works, she took many historical liberties to enrich the story it worked The novel is rich with imagery, emotional context, and personifications Yes, some of the timelines and facts are a bit off and the readers whom read history book on the Tudor times will notice these instantly but hey, so did The Tudors on TV and you still watched that In fact, this books reads sort of like an over dramatic episode of The Tudors focusing on Cathering Parr and her obsessive love with Thomas Seymour another dirtbag who got the ladies Ew Interesting, vivid, and entertaining A delicious bite of historical entertainment.
