History made enjoyable.

Well written, beautifully read, a pleasure to listen to. A great contrast to history lessons as I recall them.

Loved it and learnt a lot about an important time in history

To be honest I only bought this book as Zara Ramm was narrating it - but I'm so glad I did
Its a great story about an almost forgotten person in history who served Elizabeth 1
Told with just enough details to keep you interested and for me it was a great insight into Tudor England and the games and manipulations that happened then
Wish there were more!
