Elizabeth succeed her as queen I should have been eager to see this happen hungry to watch the characters t Made it just over 100 pages in 111 to be exact There s just no narrative to this There are 3 POVs Katharine, a whiny self involved girl who goes from crying over a boy to suddenly a lesbian bisexual Mary, a younger girl who is either lamenting her deformity or being treated like a baby by the Queen and Lavinia, an artist who just talks about hiding how she s not a Catholic None of the POVs are engaging and I don t care about any of the characters The best historical fictions find the Made

Catherine and Mary must make, a tension that captivates even those who know the history of the younger Grey girls and anticipate where the narrative is headed.Tone is not the only thing that stands out when reflecting on this piece Jane, the traditional headliner, has a very interesting role in the narrative She appears briefly I will state right now that Philippa Gregory has SERIOUS competition

Levina Teerlinc, a reknowned miniaturist whose work is held in the VA, amongst other places.Katherine and Mary are interestingly portrayed Katherine as a woman lead by her emotions, and Mary, as one lead by her intellect Indeed, from what we know of Mary, she was considered as precocious a scholar as her older sister Jane and her cousin Elizabeth.Beautifully written and enthralling, Elizabeth
