Praise for Philippa Gregory:
‘Written from instinct, not out of calculation, and it shows.’
Peter Ackroyd, The Times
‘For sheer pace and percussive drama it will take a lot of beating.’ Sunday Times
‘Gregory is great at conjuring a Tudor film-set of gorgeous gowns and golden-lattered dining. She invokes some swoonsome images…while the politics are personal enough to remain pertinent.’ Daily Telegraph
‘The contemporary mistress of historical crime fiction is Philippa Gregory. Her novels are filled with strong, determined women who take their fate into their own hands…Gregory brings to life the sights, smells and textures of 16th-century England.’ Kate Mosse, Financial Times
About the Author
Philippa Gregory was an established historian and writer when she discovered her interest in the Tudor period and wrote the internationally bestselling novel The Other Boleyn Girl, which became a major film starring Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. Her Cousins’ War novels were the basis for the highly successful BBC series, The White Queen.
Philippa’s other great interest is the charity that she founded twenty years ago: Gardens for The Gambia. She has raised funds and paid for over 200 wells in the primary schools of this poor African country.
Philippa is a former student of Sussex University and a PhD and Alumna of the Year 2009 of Edinburgh University. In 2016, she was presented with the Outstanding Contribution to Historical Fiction Award by the Historical Writers' Association. Her love for history and commitment to historical accuracy are the hallmarks of her writing.

What I always enjoy about these books is after finishing them I always make a point to learn more about the characters and Bess was some lady! I didnt know anything about her before.
That being said however, it took at least two full playings of the entire Audiobook, for me to form an opinion on it. At first I was initially quite disappointed with it, I thought it was quite weak. Then I had occasion to listen to it again, and my opinion began to change. Ms. Gregory's trademark for characterisation, had acutely observed the interweaving relationship between Prisoner and Jailor, and the domino effect it had on all main characters involved: - Most notably The Earl of Shrewsbury and The Tudor Court in general.
I found that although it was necessary to have three different readers, it was also a little confusing at times. I think that added to my confusion with this book
This is a good book, although it may take some time to get into.
If you don't buy this book you'll miss probably the greatest story of Mary and Elizabeth ever written.
