    Emjoyable, Very Enjoyable

    Princess Mary Tudor, youngest and favorite sister of Henry VIII, is beautiful and headstrong, but destined to a marriage of convenience, like all ladies of high rank at the time. But Mary has other ideas. She has fallen in love with a man she considers her brother's equal, a handsome man who had no rival in the joust. Mary is forced to marry Louis, the old king of France, who has failed to produce a male heir. But she is not one to go down without a fight. Using her charm and influence with her brother, she manages to obtain from Henry the promise that once Louis is dead she will be able to marry following her heart. After Louis¿ death and with the aid of the Dauphin himself, Mary marries Charles Brandon and returns to England to phase her fate and the wrath of her powerful brother. This is a book you will read in a short time, but one you will enjoy thoroughly.

    Very Highly Recommended

    Any of the Plaidy books having to do with the British Royalty is very, very highly recommended! She brings the characters to life and puts you right into the middle of all the action. You will cry, laugh, gasp and go through a whole range of emotions during her page-turners. Hey, just do it. You won't be sorry and you will be all the wiser in the end.

    The Making of a Fascinating Tale Dulled

    I was dissapointed by this book. Being a Tudor history enthusiast, I was very excited to read this book, and I had much previous knoledge of the story. However, upon reading the book, it seems dry and uninteresting, though fairly amusing and entertaining at a few times. Mary's character seemed too weak and winy. Some historical inaccuracies bothered me.

    My favorite of Jean Plaidy's works

    A beautiful story sheads tudor times in a different light. Mary Tudor one of my role models is shown best in this novel. She is witty, intelligent, head-strong, beautiful, and a hopeless romantic. Through it all, her Charles was her superior motivation.

    I Absolutely loved it!

    This is a wonderful book. It was the first I have read by Jean Plaidy and I'm excited to read more of her works. The only reason I disliked it was it moved almost too quickly and comes to a somewhat abrupt end. I would have liked to have read Henry's, Charles's, and her children's feelings as a final chapter. I highly recommend this book!
