The Lady Elizabeth: A Novel

The Lady Elizabeth: A Novel The Lady Elizabeth: A Novel by Alison Weir


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is excellent! While it is fiction based on rumors Alison Weir's knowledge of the life of Elizabeth I allows the surrounding details of the story to support the plot. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

There is a tremendous amount of background information on the life of the aristocracy during the period. What I was most impressed with and intrigued by was the extreme risk being a noble, or even a princess could be. There was such an undercurrent of suspicion and treachery and it made me think that their lot was hardly better than the middle class...if in fact, as good.
