Clever, headstrong Elizabeth Rose Camperdowne knows her duty. As the sole heiress to an old but impoverished noble family, Eliza must marry a man of wealth and title - it's the only fate for a girl of her standing. But when a surprising turn of events lands her in the royal court as a maid of honor to Anne of Cleves, Eliza is drawn into the dizzying, dangerous orbit of Henry the Eighth and struggles to distinguish friend from foe. Is her glamorous flirt of a cousin, Katherine Howard, an ally in this deceptive place, or is she Eliza's worst enemy? And then there's Ned Barsby, the king's handsome page, who is entirely unsuitable for Eliza but impossible to ignore. British historian Lucy Worsley provides a vivid, romantic glimpse of the treachery, tragedy, and thrills of life in the Tudor court.

WAY too stupid to live... WAY to boring to listen..
If you like stories of simpering, stupid maidens that could not possibly have any basis in fact, of dumb clucks that learn nothing about themselves or the world they live in and to top it off, preposterous endings that only romantic schoolgirls might appreciate, then by all means have at this drivel. Otherwise, spend a credit on one of the author's non fiction works. This is brainless junk.

NOT a Youth Book
This book is marketed as a book for teens/young adult, but I feel the themes in this story are largely adult. Chapter 21 in particular talks about Eliza feeling the the King’s “wood” pressed against her backside. It also talks about maids sneaking off into closets with young men, and the king’s impotence. It has a good story line and The voice-acting was great, but I would not allow a teen to read this.
