I was pleasantly surprised by this *book thinking it would be a straight by the numbers romance It s actually a theological *thinking it would be a straight by the numbers romance It s actually a theological "With Some Intrigue A Bit " some intrigue a bit romance and adventure The heroine Honor Larke is Thomas More s wa I am not a history buff The only thing that I remember about King Henry is that he liked to chop of his wives heads And that is all I got out of that lecture in high schoolBut this book was than just history Albeit there was a lot though no than xpected from reading the blurb The story built well off of
ACTUAL EVENTS AND THE AUTHOR S CHARACTER FIT SEAMLESSLY events and the author s character fit seamlessly the plot Honor is an awesome character She went through so much in her life She is truly a heroine in my yes Her strength and bravery were amazing And I loved how she seemed like a real person There are many historical romances that seem completely bogus This was not one of themHonor s thoughts and feelings towards the men in her life made the series much likable I ll admit I m not one to read stories without romance But I didn t find myself bored during the times in this novel that had noneI sincerely njoyed this and will continue with the series though not right away My brain is still processing all of that information I definitely recommend this and hope you njoy it too I read this years ago when it was A Dangerous Temptation The old dition looks like a romance novel the new one looks like a Philippa Gregory novel but both of these impressions are kind of misleading There s a romance yeah but the novel focuses mainly on the religious tensions in 16th century Europe and how the various sects tortured burned and otherwise oppressed anyone who believed differently Engrossing if you re a historical fiction buff but incredibly bleak for long stretches I found Barbara Kyle s The ueen s Lady to be a bit hit miss On the positive side there were a lot of twist and turns to the story which keeps you guessing what is going to happen next The Tudor history is captivating in itself and this story just shows another viewpoint of Henry VIII Anne Boleyn and the political and religious players of the time On the negative side there was a loss of coherency to the story as it seemed the author wanted to present all the differing religious views of the time making the story unnecessarily complex Some of the plot particularly about the M nsterites and Anabaptists was uite strange There is so much going on the story its confusing and I think the chapter divisions would have benefited from an accompanying timeline and not just a specific title If you would like to read a similar story historical fiction I finished reading The ueen s Lady over holiday break and it is asily the best book I ve read all year Kyle tells her thought provoking story from both sides of the conflict between the Catholic and Protestant churches There is a profound message in this book about faith and organized religion that gives it real soul Honor Larke is a lady in waiting to ueen Catherine of Aragon But do not think for a moment this is a simple book about a maid at court sewing tears in ueen Catherine s skirts Kyle plumbs the depths of faith and zealotry inside of a fast paced story about.
