A wonderful novel with an excellent narrator!
If you love historical novels by Alison Weir and Philippa Gregory, you'll LOVE this novel by Elizabeth Chadwick. It's the first I've read so far and I am addicted! I immediately purchased the second title in the series. It's a wonderfully written novel with captivating characters. It never gets boring, since Chadwick has a talent for giving the reader insight into the emotions of the protagonists without drawing it out too long. The novel is thoroughly researched and she doesn't take too much liberty with historical inaccuracies. The narrator has a beautiful, strong and feminine voice who manages to underline the characters and moods.
I recommend it highly!
