Praise for Venus in Winter

"A vast panorama of Tudor history, from the viewpoint of a legendary woman who loomed large in it--the redoubtable, fabulously wealthy, much-married Bess of Hardwick."--Margaret George, author of Elizabeth I: The Novel "Venus in Winter does justice to the extraordinary, powerful, and dangerous Bess of Hardwick. Gillian Bagwell has brought to vivid life one of the great women of Tudor England."--Bernard Cornwell, author of 1356 "A wonderful portrait of one of Elizabethan England's most fascinating--and most long-lived--women. A great read, rich with detail and story!"--Diana Gabaldon, author of the bestselling Outlander series "The crushing anxiety of family financial burdens, the marital expectations placed on high-born young women, and the uncertainties of life under Henry VIII and his children are all explored in this richly imagined and beautifully written novel. I think it's Bagwell's best!"--Patricia Bracewell, author of Shadow on the Crown "Bagwell proves that a Tudor heroine doesn't have to be a royal to fascinate us. An eyewitness account of the turbulent reigns of five English monarchs, Venus in Winter is a refreshing, engaging, and impeccably researched novel."--Leslie Carroll, author of Royal Romances
