    Very interesting read.

    Very interesting read. I did not know about this story. Queen Elizabeth was very unkind but this was a very hard life for women also.

    good story but drags

    good story from a historical point. Women were chattel for barter. in the past I have found her writing to be engaging but this one drags.

    A must read if you enjoy historical novels.

    This book has lots of rich history and has a very compelling story. I couldn't put it down. It was one of my favourite Philippa Gregory books.

    Born of royal blood, wanting only true love

    I am voluntarily submitting my review after receiving an eARC of the novel from NetGalley. This novel is ostensibly about the Grey sisters--Jane, Katherine and Mary; however, all three Grey sisters are overshadowed by their cousin, Elizabeth who is portrayed as a terrible tyrant throughout the novel. While each of the Grey women is handled with care and sensitivity and is drawn with heartbreaking reality, Elizabeth seems unidimensional--almost a caricature like the mad queen of Lewis Carroll's imaginings. But while Elizabeth's fantastically mercurial personality comes across as too cruel to be real and honestly portrayed, it is highly likely that this is exactly how Elizabeth was perceived through the eyes of the Grey sisters from whose perspective the novel is written. As I read this book, each of the Grey sisters drew me in and inspired a whole range of feelings--sorrow for their plight and isolation, rage for the injustices done to them, elation for their ability find love and seize it with both hands--a veritable gamut of emotions. The book is ultimately about the darker side of human ambition and is by no means light-hearted, but it is nevertheless a fantastic novel and well worth the read.
