The Barnes & Noble Review
Bestselling author Bertrice Small brings her Friarsgate Inheritance saga (Rosamund; Until You; Philippa) to a close with the story of beautiful, independent Elizabeth Meredith and her bumpy road to happiness. Since she was 14 and began to manage the family estate, Friarsgate, Elizabeth has been successful at everything but love. Her mother, Rosamund, finally sends her to the court of King Henry to find a husband. Her matchmaking uncle, Thomas Bolton, tries unsuccessfully to make Elizabeth truly court-worthy, yet she begins a flirtation with an unsuitable Scot and a friendship with Anne Boleyn. Once Elizabeth returns home, unwed, she resumes a budding relationship with Baen MacColl, another rugged Scot. The attraction catches fire, but Baen returns to Scotland out of loyalty to his father, not knowing Elizabeth is pregnant. How two stubborn people in love reconcile is part of the story's charm. Readers will also enjoy all the historical details of Anne Boleyn, from her rise to power, coronation, and downfall to the legend of her sixth finger. Ginger Curwen

I enjoyed this book the most out of the Friarsgate Series because the youngest daughter, Elizabeth, was so different from her sisters. The character, Baen, was interesting too. Rosamund is also in the story at different times. Very good read.

The prose wasn't great, and the plot seemed a little forced at times, but I enjoyed the romance element and the historical details. It's good if you want a mindless, fluffy read.

This first few chapters of this book was a bit boring but it got better when Baen and Elizabeth became close. I loved reading about them. Elizabeth was a lot more likable than Philippa. I felt a little sad near the end of this book, because, I knew it was the last one in the series. The Friarsgate series is not as good as the Skye O'Malley series but I did like the first two books in this series very much. Rosamund and Logan made the first two books enjoyable. If they had been featured a lot more in this book and in 'Philippa', I think the Friarsgate series would have been almost as good as the Skye O'Malley series. I wanted to read more about Rosamund and Logan but I still enjoyed this book.

Elizabeth knew what she wanted. She became very independent at a young age. She is a very practical woman and has a backbone. Loved having her Uncle Thomas in it and that the book connected to 2 different characters in some of her other books. Elizabeth ends up finding love and finding out Anne was just a person who was place in the path of a powerful king.

During the reign of Henry VIII, at fourteen Elizabeth Meredith inherited Friarsgate when her mother and older middle sister married and moved onto their respective spouses¿ estate and her oldest sibling and her husband chose the king¿s court. Eight years later she remains independent running her estate until her mother informs her she must marry so that an heir can inherit Friarsgate. --- Her beloved sixty years old Uncle Thomas agrees to escort the feisty landowner to court. However, before they leave for London, Baen MacColl comes from Scotland at the behest of his father to discus a sheep deal. As the two die in the wool anti-marital soul mates fall in love, Elizabeth chaperoned by her uncle travels to the king¿s court. There she befriends the beleaguered queen while Henry VIII begins his campaign to replace his wife Katherine with Anne. --- The key to this battle between two independent obstinate loving combatants is the background that incorporates Henry¿s antics as he sets in motion his plan to remove Katherine of Aragon as queen and replace her with Anne Boleyn. Bertrice Small cleverly uses the monumental sixteenth century events to tell her story of love yet in some ways the shadow overwhelms the lead characters. Fans of historical romance with strong doses of both will enjoy the latest Meredith tale (see UNTIL YOU AND PHILIPPA). --- Harriet Klausner
