Fiction. Literature. Historical Fiction. HTML:The first novel in the acclaimed Elizabethan Quartet: "Wonderfully juicy...Maxwell brings all of bloody Tudor England vividly to life." ??Publishers Weekly (starred review)
One was queen for a thousand days; one for over forty years. Both were passionate, headstrong women, loved and hated by Henry VIII. Yet until the discovery of the secret diary, Anne Boleyn and her daughter, Elizabeth I, had never really met . . .
Anne was the second of Henry's six wives, doomed to be beloved, betrayed, and beheaded. When Henry fell madly in love with her upon her return from an education at the lascivious French court, he was already a married man. While his passion for Anne was great enough to rock the foundation of England and of all Christendom, in the end he forsook her for another love, schemed against her, and ultimately had her sentenced to death. But unbeknownst to the king, Anne had kept a diary.
At the beginning of Elizabeth's reign, it is pressed into her hands. In reading it, the young queen discovers a great deal about her much-maligned mother: Anne's fierce determination, her hard-won knowledge about being a woman in a world ruled by despotic men, and her deep-seated love for the infant daughter taken from her shortly after her birth.
In the journal's pages, Elizabeth finds an echo of her own dramatic life as a passionate young woman at the center of England's powerful male establishment, and with the knowledge gained from them, makes a resolution that will change the course of history . . .
"Maxwell is one of the most popular??and one of the best??historical novelists currently mining the rich vein of Tudor history." ??B

Al alcanzar el trono de Inglaterra, la joven Isabel I recibe en secreto el diario de su madre, que acaba de ser ejecutada en la Torre de Londres. Este diario revela los entresijos de la relación que Ana Bolena mantuvo con Enrique VIII.
A medida que Isabel descubre a la madre que nunca conoció y comprende la infamia que se cometió con ella, el lector se adentra en la intimidad de la reina para desvelar uno de los misterios más ocuros de la historia: por qué Isabel I, apodada "la Reina Virgen", decidió no casarse ni tener descendencia, acabando así con la dinastía más poderosa que jamás haya gobernado Inglaterra, como la propia Maxwell desarrolla en "El bastardo de la reina", publicado en esta misma colección.

What to say about this book... That's a tough one. Let me start with mentioning that I'm not too familiar with the royal history of Britain. That's putting it mildly. So I won't comment on historical accuracy at all.
I gave this book a 3-star rating because I liked it. It gave me a look into royal and upper class life in the periods of Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth. The way people lived, morals, values, schemes, plotting, church. And it was an interesting look.
When I started out, it was quite boring, and I didn't expect to finish it then. But the book got more interesting the more pages I read.
All in all, a nice read. ( )

I was unimpressed and uninspired ( )

Great premise, lousy execution (sorry, bad pun). The author writes dialogue that attempts to move forward the plot while explaining British history. It reads as forced and unnatural. The infrequent interspersing of dated words such as"methinks," and "in deed" (not indeed) into contemporary language is jarring. In deed, methinks thou shouldst take a pass. ( )

Lots of politics of Anne's time as well as Elizabeth's time. Scary that there was so much manipulation and back stabbing that one needed to fear for their lives. ( )
