  • "One of our best popular historians...with an impressive scholarly pedigree in Tudor history"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "It is testament to Weir's artfulness and elegance as a writer that The Lady in the Tower remains fresh and suspenseful, even though the reader knows what's coming... One of the pleasures of The Lady in the Tower is that it invites the reader into the historiographical process as Weir's emphasis on primary sources allows us to evaluate them alongside her"

    Independent
  • "Weir...knows her sources well. She writes in an engaging way and adopts an even-handed approach"

    Irish Times

    Jessie Childs, Literary Review
  • "The research is exhaustive... It would be hard to imagine a more thorough examination of any comparable historical issue... Weir is to be congratulated on her impartiality and sound judgement"
