This provocative book is one you can't put down. Beginning with Emma Haddon-Wright's essay on Lady Godiva, which adds a refreshing feminist vibe to an old story, you'll be gripped by the very human true stories of sexuality and the cultural impact of each era. Following Ms Haddon-Wright essay, Annie Whitehead expertly shares the true story of an Anglo-Saxon menage that cost a King his crown. Jessica Cale gives insight into Courtly Love, Medieval thoughts on LGBTQ, and how their thinking was more progressive than I ever imagined.
Maryanne Coleman explains how complicated Tudor marriages were, and Judith Arnopp does not disappoint when she examines the probability of a tryst between Anne Boleyn and Sir Thomas Wyatt. Gayle Hulme makes us see Mary, Queen of Scots as a very real, complicated woman.
Dr Beth Lynne unravels the mystery of the monarchy and succession of the British Crown. Hunter S. Jones ends the work with a compelling essay on the global impact of Victorian prostitution. She helps us understand the women and men who had careers in the world's oldest profession. Her essay and the Godiva story bind seamlessly into bringing the stories full-circle.
I felt that the work is well written and researched. Each essay could be it's own book, but this format gives us a better perspective of how British sexuality shaped women and gender roles into the 20th century. The biggest surprise was the story of Nashville in the Civil War. Well done, ladies.
Author Haddon’s accounts of Lady Godiva were an eye-opener along with other ladies playing high roles in the royal courts. I enjoyed this collection and will often go back for future reference. These women portrayed were not just sex objects but women of power in their own right.
As a writer of erotica, I found valuable information here on the roles in sexuality during those time periods.
The story of Anne Boleyn & Thomas Wyatt has caught me the most. I enjoyed the way the first chapter and the last one bring the book together. The second chapter took a slightly unexpected direction and took time to get into. This is the reason I'm giving this book 4.5 stars.
