"Rarely have I felt so utterly captivated by a history book. It is stunning! Jessie Childs is a major new talent. She brings her characters to life so vividly, and the narrative just flows, packed with amazing detail. This, for me, is a surprisingly fresh view on a period with which I am very familiar." -- Alison Weir "A truly superb biography." -- A. N Wilson "Clatters along like an epic gangster movie... gripping." -- Roger Lewis * Daily Express * "Jessie Childs is a rising star among historians. Just when we thought everything had been said about Henry VIII she makes us see him from a completely new angle - through the eyes of a poet aristocrat." -- Desmond Seward "Childs's description of these complex manoeuvrings [at Henry's court], as of the French wars, is excellent...this book opens a fascinating window on the mid-Tudor world." * Guardian *

I am writing a novel on 'The Man with Grey Eyes' and I am using much of Child's research, but I don't think it is the definitive source for the subject.
