'A wonderful blend of fiction and non-fiction.' Claire Ridgway, historian and author
'Parry's ability to effortlessly cocoon fact within a story, within another story, while not compromising on the integrity of the work, will not fail to impress.' Natalie Grueninger 'On the Tudor Trail'
'Concise, understandable without being simplistic and enormously entertaining.' Author and blogger Kirsty Stonell Walker
From the Author
A fictional memoir. To explain, here is an extract from an article I wrote in 2014.
"The aim has been to go beyond the usual reading experience encountered by those of us who enjoy Tudor history, an experience in which we are presented with either a work of scholarly non-fiction, or else a novel with variable qualities of historical accuracy. I wanted, instead, to generate a certain 'magical uncertainty' with the facts - combining truth and fiction in which the sum becomes greater than its parts. This, I hope, might provide the reader with an overall impression of having learned and yet been entertained all at the same time.
It is, in other words, a collection of short stories set within a larger story - a special moment in time and space where reality and the world of the past and its inhabitants all meet up in the company of the reader."
