I read Weir s Eleanor of Aquitane and was bored stiff by all the contradicting accounts she included You really wanted her to take a side, and she just wanted to give you all the information she had dug up Well, this novelized version of Elizabeth I s life preceding her coronation does take sides You have to credit Weir with creating a sympathetic character out of someone who tried during her reign to obliterate any trace of weakness or even of her past But one of the first things Weir does I read Weir s Eleanor of Aquitane and was bored stiff by all the contradicting accounts she included You really wanted her to take a side, and she just wanted to give you all the information she had dug up Well, this novelized version of Elizabeth I s life preceding her coronation does take sides You have to credit Weir with creating a sympathetic character out of someone who tried during her reign to obliterate any trace of weakness or even of her past But one of the first things Weir does is violate her own sense of what actually h

Here is another one I was asked to review for Library Journal.OMG, so good This is the second fiction novel from Alison Weir, the fabulous Tudor historian who wrote many biographies, including The Six Wives of Henry VIII, and The Children of Henry VIII But last year she gave us her first foray into fiction about Lady Jane Grey, who was queen for about a week between Edward VI and Mary I That one was fascinating since I knew very little about her I know quite a bit about Elizabeth I, and this Here is another one I was asked to review for Library Journal.OMG, so good This is the second fiction novel from Alison Weir, the fabulous Tudor historian who wrote many biographies, including The Six Wives of Henry VIII, and The Children of Henry VIII But last year she gave us her first foray into fiction about Lady Jane Grey, who was queen for about a week between Edward VI and Mary I That one was fascinating since I knew very little about her I know quite a bit about Elizabeth I, and this was a top notch novel about her early life up to the point when she ascends the throne in her 20 s.Life was never easy for this girl, and she must have been extraordinary to be able to survive to become queen There was much against her her father had declared her a bastard, her sister despised her religious views and nearly had her killed for it But Elizabeth was known for being shrewd, wily, and able to perform the fine dance of
To me, Elizabeth I is the most interesting of all the English monarchs This novel is about the young Elizabeth, which may be aremarkable story than that of her as Queen Elizabeth She is very lucky to have survived, let alone become Queen.Her mother was executed as a traitor, she was proclaimed illegitimate, her father was the seemingly mad my word Henry VIII, and she had many other detractors as well, not the least being her two siblings, Edward and Mary But she survived her tribulati To me, Elizabeth I is the most interesting of all the English monarchs This novel is about the young Elizabeth, which may be aremarkable story than that of her as Queen Elizabeth She is very lucky to have survived, let alone become Queen.Her mother was executed as a traitor, she was proclaimed illegitimate, her father was the seemingly mad my word Henry VIII, and she had many other detractors as well, not the least being her two siblings, Edward a

Alison Weir is very easy to read She is in her element writing this kind of historical fiction, because she has written so many biographies on the Tudors, including the Wives of Henry VIII which I loved I also really enjoyed Innocent Traitor Unlike Philippa Gregory, Weir s writing is based on actual facts Do not get me wrong, I loved Gregory s The Other Boleyn Girl, but it had very little based on fact, it was made into an entirely different drama My only issue with this is that I have read Alison Weir is very easy to read She is in her element writing this kind of historical fiction, because she has written so many biographies on the Tudors, including the Wives of Henry VIII which I loved I also really enjoyed Innocent Traitor Unlike Philippa Gregory, Weir s writing is based on actual facts Do not get me wrong, I loved Gregory s The Other Bole

The story telling was 4 stars, the fictional liberties were 1 1 2 stars Yes, I know it s a fictional book, but I expectfrom a historian than a bunch of cliches In Weir s author notes, she says she enjoyed running with this story, but stated she stayed true to the facts I did not like the portrayal of Kat Elizabeth s governess She was immature, annoying and I simply wanted to slap her The problem with knowing Tudor history is hating to see the mythsAnne Boleyn and the 6th finger, The story telling was 4 stars, the fictional liberties were 1 1 2 stars Yes, I know it s a fictional book, but I expectfrom a historian than a bunch of cliches In Weir s author notes, she says she enjoyed running with this story, but stated she stayed true to the facts I did not like the portrayal of Kat Elizabeth s governess She was immature, annoying and I simply wanted to slap her The problem with knowing Tudor history is hating to see the mythsAnne Boleyn and the 6th finger, Jane Grey having abusive parents etc Elizabeth was a naive child, who fell in love with Thomas Seymour She gave him her virginity willingly, got pregnant, lost the babythen ruled men away forever Why can t a woman simply not want to get married She didn t want to share her power Why must something bad happen for her to feel that way I m an Elizabeth fan I believe she was a shrewd woman, not just a woman lead by a strong council This was an audiobook and because of that I finished it Had
I ve read a couple of Weir s books, fiction and history and so far I ve been very impressed I sometimes really struggle with the story of Elizabeth, she is a woman I greatly admire but her life sometimes lacks the excitement her parents had I keep trying to figure this out and I think the conclusion is that I don t like the men in her life Thomas Seymour and Robert Dudley are the times when she appears weakest and they are not worthy men in my opinion I know they are important parts of her l I ve read a couple of Weir s books, fiction and history and so far I ve been very impressed I sometimes really struggle with the story of Elizabeth, she is a woman I greatly admire but her life sometimes lacks the excitement her parents had I keep trying to figure this out and I think the conclusion is that I don t like the men in her life Thomas Seymour and Robert Dudley are the times when she appears weakest and they are not worthy men in my opinion I know they are important parts of her life but the fact that I d
