  • The great asset of this book is the combination of the political and the personal… Weir is a fine writer with a wonderful gift for description.

    Linda Porter, Literary Review
  • Weir has a shrewd sense of what will seize the imagination of the keen historical amateur.

    The Independent
  • Weir adheres to the conventional story without giving much weight to new theories, preferring instead to stick with the facts about daily life for a Plantagenet princess-turned-Tudor queen.
