What I Loved: Ella March Chase writes a book that is completely founded on non-historical information around Elizabeth I, and it is so intriguing. The what-if factor made it impossible for me to put this down.
How I Felt: I was excited to get through this book. I wanted to know what was happening, what would happen. I was propelled through this book by the writing and the characters.
To Read or Not To Read: If you love historical fiction or are a fan of Phillipa Gregory, this is a great book option for you!
What’s This Book About Anyway?
Nell de Lacey is the daughter of a previous lady-in-waiting to Katherine Parr, King Henry VIII’s last wife. All she wants in life is to meet the Princess Elizabeth! Elizabeth is soon crowned Queen, and Nell is called up to be a lady-in-waiting. **How Exciting!!**
But there are rumors at court, ones surrounding Elizabeth and a nine-month gap in her history. Nell arrives and those rumors are quickly flames. Nell looks like the Queen with red hair and a face to match Elizabeth’s. Nell is now in danger of being caught in court politics and possibly sent to the tower.
