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!
enjoyed listening to what could be a different side to what influence a queen of England.

I liked this book even though it was out of my norm. I was not sure this would be for me as I am a true hard history buff who loves her Tudor England buying hard facts and top fiction based on true facts. I study courses on the Tudor subject. However; Karen Harper knows how to spin a good yarn and this books is like a good old gossip with a friend. Based on some facts and mixed with fiction this works rather well.
The narrator is a big part of why I liked the book. Zara Ramm is perfect for creating the kind of ambiance needed for a story like this and for me gets it just right. You can relate to her voice characters. I like the way Zara reads so much so that I immediately looked up what other works this narrator has to offer and there is quite a lot. So, more yummy reads, listens.
If like me, you do not go into this book with any high expectations, you will become pleasantly surprised and enjoy this. In fact, my only objection is; the book ended rather abruptly and I was left feeling like I wanted more. But this is a sign of a good writer who knows her tricks of the trade. I am sure Harpers other offers will be just as good.
