I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read a well-written book.
I'm sure that the accuracy of the true historical happenings extends throughout the book as it is written by an author who knows her time and her characters very well.
The way I'm going to try and get through this boring book is to just read it one bit at a time.
I stopped reading it about 40% of the way through the book. That is very unusual for me. I also am knowledgeable about the time period & Henry VIII. Read morePublished 2 hours ago by Terry A. Burke

The book is written as if you are inside Thomas Cornell's mind. The author did a very good job telling where Cromwell learned to be so clever.Published 1 day ago by Karen A Munson
I'm not sure what person this is written in, I guess second or third. Whose speaking isn't always clear but after a few sentences, you go "oh, okay, I get it". Read morePublished 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
