This is not the usual genre I read but it turned out to be more than I thought it would be. It’s true it was a “hero and a beautiful lady” type story. However as an historical romance it was set quite perfectly into the Tudor era and gave me some insight into the customs and the history. In fact it created so many questions in my head that I went straight to my computer to learn more about the period. Most were true to the word even in this fiction book. I love stories that make vivid pictures and make you wonder what life was like. This is a quick to read interesting historic fiction book with some romance mixed in. Good reading.
