A very interesting fictional portrayal Of The Life Of Ueen the life "of ueen the first before her ascension to the throne The book "ueen the first before her ascension to the throne The book divided into three parts describing different periods In the first the writer deals with her childhood in a very tender manner that shows us that despite her position she was also a little girl like all the others looking for love and affection In the second she deals with her highly controversial relationship with her stepfather but I found this point somewhat Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey exaggerated though as she says in thend based on some real rumors about the nature of this relationship In the third one we are in the politically most critical part of this period when during her sister s reign she lived years of uncertainty trying to survive and maintain her position as successor to the throne There the writer does a very good job as a historian putting a lot of historical details in this part thus creating an God's Pocket exciting chronicle this insistence however I think it is at thexpense of literary I can say that I liked it ЯED enough with the first part to leaving mexcited After that however nthusiasm declined but not nough to change My View That It Is view that it is very good historical novel Alison Weir is very The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs easy to read She is in herlement writing this kind of historical fiction because she has written so many biographies on the Tudors including the Wives of Henry VIII which I loved I also really Moreno enjoyed Innocent Traitor Unlike Philippa Gregory Weir s writing is based on actual facts Do not get me wrong I loved Gregory s The Other Boleyn Girl but it had very little based on fact it was made into anntirely different drama My only issue with this is that I have read so many biographies and fictional stories about Elizabeth that it often repeated the same things but if you mean to stay true to Here is another one I was asked to review for Library JournalOMG so goodThis is the second fiction novel from Alison Weir the fabulous Tudor historian who wrote many biographies including The Six Wives of Henry VIII and The Children of Henry VIII But last year she gave us her first foray into fiction about Lady Jane Grey who was ueen for about a week between Edward VI and Mary I That one was fascinating since I knew very little about her I know uite a bit about Elizabeth I and this was a top notch novel about her Monsieur Pain early life up to the point when she ascends the throne in her 20 sLife was neverasy for this girl and she must have been xtraordinary to be able to survive to become ueen There was much against her her father had declared her a bastard her sister despised her religious views and nearly had her killed for it But Elizabeth was known for being shrewd wily and able to perform the fine dance of diplomacy The most interesting part of this novel was the period of her life following her father s death when she lived with her stepmother Katherine Parr and her new husband Thomas Seymour Katherine had been in love with Seymour when the King commanded she marry him instead When she became free she was allowed to marry her love and soon became pregnant for the first time at the age of 36 This may not seem.

Such a great thing in this day and age but in the 1500 s that was a very late age for a woman to be pregnant it was a great health risk to both mother and childThomas Seymour was a rake Heh You see them gracing the covers of romance novels but you never think of them actually xisting in history Seymour was a man of ambition and would seemingly stop at nothing to gain the most power and wealth he could Before he married Katherine Parr he tried to woo both Mary and Elizabeth When the Privy Council would have none of it he wooed Katherine and got her to marry him in secret without the permission of the Council or the King Rather a no no at the timeEven though he was married to Katherine he was still drawn to Elizabeth and since she was living in his household he blatantly sought her out He came to her bedroom before she was up to tickle her He tried to catch her undressed Elizabeth was 14 years old at the time If it happened today Chris Hansen from To Catch a Predator would have been asking him to take a seat As it was it was seen as highly inappropriate and Elizabeth was finally sent away from the house Many people have speculated about just how far the relationship progressed between Elizabeth and Thomas Some say she was innocent some say she led him on And there are some who say nothing happened and some who claim Elizabeth had a child from the What If episode I love the way Weir treats this but I won t go into what she says happensAlison Weir is the perfect person to write historical fiction She knows her material inside and out and on top of it has anar for dialogue pacing and an ye for detail Well done and I look forward to reading of her fiction in the future I read Weir s Eleanor of Auitane and was bored stiff by all the contradicting accounts she included You really wanted her
To Take A Side And 
take a side and just wanted to give you all the information she had dug up Well this novelized version of Elizabeth I s life preceding her coronation does take sides You have to credit Weir with creating a sympathetic character out of someone who tried during her reign to obliterate any trace of weakness or ven of her past But one of the first things Weir does is violate her own sense of what actually happened She personally believes Elizabeth was a virgin but In The First Third Of The Novel the first third of the novel has Elizabeth having sex with her stepfather and then miscarrying the child At that point I about gave up I mean if the author herself doesn t believe what she s portraying you can feel it and the whole scene and The Exhaustion Breakthrough: Unmask the Hidden Reasons You're Tired and Beat Fatigue for Good ensuing months of Elizabeth s life suffer in the telling She tried to be Philippa Gregory but I really wanted Weir to take the high road rather than giving in to pressures from her publisher and whoeverlse decided she needed to include a sex scene This was definitely a disappointment I ve read a couple of Weir s books fiction and history and so far I ve been very impressed I sometimes really struggle with the story of Elizabeth she is a woman I g To me Elizabeth I is the most interesting of all the English monarchs This novel is about the young Elizabeth which may be a remarkable story than that of E arly life of young Elizabeth Tudor who would grow up to become England's most intriguing and powerful ueen Even at age two Elizabeth is keenly aware that people in the court of her father King Henry VIII have stopped referring to her as Lady The Lady Elizabeth
