I have been reading about Elizabeth I for 40 years. When I choose something new to read about this remarkable woman and her era, I hope to learn even more. Unfortunately this doesn't always occur, but this book has given me some deeper insight into Elizabeth's relationship with some of her most important councilors. For that, I am thrilled and I give it five stars.

This is a thoroughly researched, well-structured book that studies Elizabeth I through the lens of her relationships with others: her family, her courtiers, and her councillors. It is a good book to read if you’re interested in the period, but it requires sustained attention. I’d like to try it again sometime, or another book by Doran.

Entertaining and well-laid out book that provides an overview of the history of England during the Tudor dynasty. The choice of illustrations is quite good, and is the outstanding feature of the book, since they are well-placed to illuminate the text narrative. Be forewarned: this is a very heavy book, physically. Not precisely bed reading!

I received this through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have always had a fascination with the Tudors so I was very eager to read this new account of Elizabeth I’s life. So many times these books can be dull and lackluster but Susan Doran’s writing brought history to life in this new book. There were so many new things I learned. One of the things that interested me the most in her account was Elizabeth’s relationship with Henry VIII. In most accounts, Elizabeth is always shown to greatly admire and love her father in a way that makes it seem as if they were very close, even after sentencing her mother to die. Contrary to those beliefs, Doran points out why this was not necessarily the case. Royal children generally do not spend much time with their parents, often seeing them only a few times per year. And even when they do meet, it is not the type of quality time that modern parents share with their children. I thought that this book was incredibly fascinating and would recommend it 100% to any lover of history or of Elizabeth and the Tudor family.
