  1. Fascinating plot.Thanks for sharing- I have a young friend who could use a book like this! Here on the A to Z hop. I look forward to more letters!

  2. I love historical books; although I know that they’re not always accurate, I read them more for the storytelling and not for the history lesson. But I do keep my computer handy and will look up facts, because it’s all very interesting to me. I did this when I was watching the first season of Tudors. I loved what they got right and was curious about the creative changes they made.

    I also think these books do a good job of making younger people interested in our history.

    Thanks for the blurb.

  3. Hi Bethany. I’m intrigued by your comment. I hope your young friend is able to read my book. I think she would enjoy it… but then I’m biased… 🙂
