Rival to the Queen (1943)

review 1: The slight problem I have with Carolly Ericksons books is not the suspenseful events that continuously happen but the lack of attachment to the characters. This book, unlike the Bird of Paradise one, was I memorable and I really didn't understand the true motives and ideas of Let...

review 1: While there were colorful descriptions of costumes, there wasn't much historical accuracy and in some ways, the book seemed to be too comedic. Like turning the whole Protestant Reformation and the rise of Anne Boleyn into some sort of clique throwdown which each side trying to fo...

review 1: I started off loving this book. The writing style kept you interested. Yet as the book went on, the historical inaccuracies and impossibilities were bothering me as a history teacher. I know it is historical fiction, but as a teacher when my students read books they begin to thin...

review 1: I am usually a huge fan of Carolly Erickson's take on historical fiction, but I have to admit this one fell a bit short for me. I felt very disconnected from all of the characters I encountered in this novel, especially the main character Catherine Howard. I am not sure if this w...

review 1: I really liked the writing style. I began reading this because of the history and finished because I had to know what would happen to the characters. I think it would deserve 3 and 1/2. The history was turned into an easy-to-read story. I think the history was interpreted proper...

review 1: Why did I pick up another book of Erickson's? I know, because it was about my favorite Queen Consort, Catherine of Aragon. Just no! No! Another tale that seems to be too comedic (I don't find anything funny about what happened to her) and far fetched facts, like Katherine giving ...

review 1: If you would like to read a good book on Jane Seymour I would suggest "Plain Jane" (Can't remember the author). While I understand that it is hard to always get the details right I was offended by how off base some of the things that happened were. Nun of Kent? A secret lover? No...

review 1: Se fosse andata così.......che bello sarebbe stato!"Alla Tat'jana storica non è concesso di sfuggire a quelle tenebre, ma la Tat'jana immaginata riuscì a sconfiggere e rimane viva in queste pagine e nei nostri cuori." Con queste parole efficaci la Erickson ci fa capire che grazie...

review 1: A friend gave me this book several months ago and I think I read the author's note back then and promptly forgot about it. Halfway through the book something seemed so off that I decided to reread it (the note not the book). I realised what was bugging me. She made up way too muc...

review 1: I don't know enough about this time in history to know while reading it which parts were made up and which were based in truth. With that being said, I thought this was a good read. I like the little twist that you know he sees her beheading early on, it made me curious to see ho...
