I really enjoyed this book, especially the unique perspective of Elizabeth as a child.
yes, that is something that i can say with confidence i really did enjoy. You see it in movies Elizabeth as a child, but to actually read her thought from the age of 2 is amazing... great work Alison!
This book, seemed quiet hard to get into at the beginning. I am now 3/4 of the way through, and it still hasn't enthralled me. It is very interesting having 1 book from the age of 3 to well at the moment she is 19. You have to be quiet an author to do all this in one book, and I am findng Allison Wier to be just that.!
I found this a book of interesting theories like the one that Elizabeth had a baby. She may well have had an affair with Seymour but IF, as is suggested, she gave birth or miscarried it is certain that the attending midwife would have said something. A payment or some sort of remuneration for her work in order to keep her quiet would have been noticed by her peers. Then if she had not been paid or received a 'gift for her services' she would have made it known who she thought the 'lady' was. I think it is more likely that Elizabeth decided not to go the way of her mother having memories of her fathers attitude to 'marriage and love.' However I do think it is more likely that these rumours were banded about at the time in question purely to discredit Elizabeth. But this is my personal opinion and does nothing to detract from the fact that this is a very good story written with ability to keep a non Elizabethan reader like myself wanting to know what came next. I was really disappointed when I got to the end.
