Well. I am not really sure how to start. As anyone (and I am pretty sure that is no one) who reads my reviews knows, I dont really write a review as much as a commentary about my thoughts of the book.
I usually and unashamedly love Philippa Gregory's books. This book is not her usual historical fiction, but I knew that when I started reading.
I have never ever hated characters as much as I hated them in this book. I hated Isobel, I hated Philip, I hated Murray and I hated Troy. I did not like Mrs M and I guess I hated Zelda too. So if that was Philippa's objective, it worked for me. Hmm - negative Nelly over here.
I found Isobel pathetic. She was disapointing in many ways, but it was her pompous nature that really bugged me. For someone who would have others believe she was the epitome of moral fibre, her lack of back bone was exceptional and also her lack of faithfulness left me bitter everytime she snapped at someone or felt self righteous - which was all the time. The woman needs a slice of humble pie, and a spine.
Philip. What can I say? The man is a self important pot of urine. Selfish, Childish, and at the end of the day a snipey, whiney, demanding goober.
Troy, Mrs M and Murray are all along for the ride and I dont like them either.
The book kept me interested enough to move forward, and I did feel something. Just Disapointment that the characters were so easy for me to hate. So, overall I think the book was good - it sure as shit kept me reading, if only because I wanted the characters to fail.

Read information about the authorPhilippa Gregory was an established historian and writer when she discovered her interest in the Tudor period and wrote the novel The Other Boleyn Girl, which was made into a TV drama and a major film. Published in 2009, the bestselling The White Queen, the story of Elizabeth Woodville, ushered in a new series involving The Cousins’ War (now known as The War of the Roses) and a new era for the acclaimed author.
Gregory lives with her family on a small farm in Yorkshire, where she keeps horses, hens and ducks. Visitors to her site, www.PhilippaGregory.com become addicted to the updates of historical research, as well as the progress of her ducklings.
Her other great interest is the charity she founded nearly twenty years ago; Gardens for The Gambia. She has raised funds and paid for 140 wells in the primary schools of the dry, poverty stricken African country. Thousands of school children have learned market gardening, and drunk the fresh water in the school gardens around the wells.
A former student of Sussex University, and a PhD and Alumna of the Year 2009 of Edinburgh University, her love for history and her commitment to historical accuracy are the hallmarks of her writing. She also reviews for US and UK newspapers, and is a regular broadcaster on television, radio, and webcasts from her website.
