Reviews

"The compelling drama of Elizabeth's life, the traumatic perils she faced as a young woman, the murder of her brothers by Richard III and the later mystery of Perkin Warbeck, are richly presented." -- Iain Finlayson * The Times *
"A meticulous scholar... Weir sincerely admires her subject, doing honor to an almost forgotten queen" * New York Times *
"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." -- Lesley McDowell * Herald *
