Fun and easy to read. I could not put it down. Well researched and documented. I will read again and again.

If the 16th century is your history obsession... actually even if it's not, this book is fascinating. This is not a television series featuring the lavish lifestyles of the aristocrats and the wealthy. This book presents life, in all it's little details, as most of the women lived it during during this time period. The author gives answers to many of the questions you may have about the 1500s and discusses some you may have never even thought of. This is a balanced account of life for a woman of this time period showing the good, the bad, the pretty, the ugly and sometimes the funny. Well written, easy to read and very enjoyable.
