Made it just over 100 pages in 111 to be exact There s just no narrative to this There are 3 POVs Katharine a whiny self involved girl who goes from crying over a boy to suddenly a lesbian bisexual Mary a younger girl who is either lamenting her deformity or being treated like a baby by the ueen and Lavinia an artist who just talks about hiding how she s not a Catholic None of the POVs are engaging and I don t care about any of the characters The best historical fictions find the story within the past and make it come alive but this is just sadly putting me to sleep

Early in Mary Tudor’s turbulent reign Lady Catherine and Lady Mary Grey are reeling after the brutal execution of their elder seventeen year old sister Lady Jane Grey and the succession is by no means stable Neither sister is well suited to a dangerous life at court Flirtatious Lady Catherine thought to be the true heir cannot control her compulsion to love. From early on in the book it was clear that there was little to keep me reading There was no plot driver or anything that made me want to finish the book Obviously Mary I was going to die and Elizabeth succeed her as ueen I should have been eager to see this happen hungry to watch the characters thrust into this political hornets nest but I just didn t care The author failed to create the feeling of sympathy for her characters Take Katherine for her example her sister has died so she is upset but this doesn t seem to last long She is concerned with her love interest which results in even less emotional connectedness The three protagonists of the book are very different people They have their own separate point of views and very far apart stories That being said each point of view sounded the same Had I not read the character name at the beginning of each chaptersection I wouldn t have been able to tell the difference ignoring plot content of course The voices of the characters within the narrative are just too similar and undistinguishable from one another I was very disappointed with this book it felt like it was missing a key element or ingredient My initial expectations fell very flat This is an author whose work I will not read againI won this book as a giveaway here on goodreads
