I was pleasantly surprised with Sisters of Treason. I will be honest, I was envisioning only a brushed over flimsy history lesson with weak characters and anachronistic language, terminology and actions.Read more ›
Although I had not read the previous book, The Queen's Gambit, it made no difference – this story definitely stands alone. At first I was a little apprehensive because of the over-abundance of Tudor novels on the market currently, and I am getting a little weary of them, but I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. The author has taken us deep into the viewpoint of two lesser known women in England’s history. So for that aspect alone, I found this book unique and refreshing. Brava Elizabeth Freemantle for bringing to life women other than those married to Henry VIII!
I did not expect to become so involved in this story, but I did. Lots of detail, spectacular writing, and an engaging plot kept me involved right to the very last page. Definitely a book not to overlook, especially if you are a fan of English history! I'm definitely looking forward to reading The Queen's Gambit!
It follows her sisters as they experience court life after the political fall of their family.
This is a very well researched novel. I love the way each sister has a voice. The sisters have different roles throughout the court which is very intriguing. However, there are places in the body of the novel that are just plain dull. I expected a faster pace with more plotting and planning.
3 out of 5 stars
I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.
Told in the combined voices of sisters Katherine and Mary Grey and also of Levina Teerlinc who is a court painter we are given an insight into just what life was like at the centre of Tudor politics and of how both Katherine and Mary were always kept within a hair’s breadth of the Tudor crown. Both sisters lived a tragic life and this is sensitively and emotionally explored in a novel which covers both the reigns of ‘bloody Mary’ and her more charismatic, but no less terrifying sister, Elizabeth.
There is no doubt that this new voice in historical fiction really knows how to bring the royal court alive in a believable and realistic way. Beautifully written and meticulously researched Sisters of Treason abounds with danger and political skulduggery, and offers a unique insight into a royal court where being a potential Tudor heir and female was fraught with danger, and which ultimately would have no happy ending for any of the trio of Grey sisters.

I found this book was very tedious to read in the beginning. I bought it in the fall of 2015 and would read a few chapters at a time over the next few months. Read morePublished 2 days ago by ahammerquilts
