Adored only child of Henry VIII and his Queen, Katherine of Aragon, Princess Mary is raised in the golden splendour of her father's court. But the King wants a son and heir. With her parents' marriage, and England, in crisis, Mary's perfect world begins to fall apart. Exiled from the court and her beloved mother, she seeks solace in her faith, praying for her father to bring her home. But when the King does promise to restore her to favour, his love comes with a condition. The choice Mary faces will haunt her for years to come - in her allegiances, her marriage and her own fight for the crown. Can she become the queen she was born to be?… (més)

I have read the Six Wives of Henry VIII and the book about Henry VIII himself. This was the least interesting book for a couple of reasons.

First Henry features very little in the story about Mary because they rarely lived together. She occasionally came to court but mainly it was Mary with the people in her life. Henry was bigger than life and his absence, for the most part, from the book made it less interesting than the other books.

Secondly, the most important thing to Mary was her religion - practicing, preserving, and fighting for it. As an atheist, I found it boring and irritating.

Finally, I took off half a star because of the author's baffling use of ".?.?.?" instead of "..." to indicate a trailing off of speech. It was distracting. I expect better from an established author such as Weir. ( )

Mary is born of love and into a family rich with honours and status. The only child of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, Mary is raised to be a queen but her father longs for a male heir. When he suppplants her mother with the 'witch' Anne Boleyn, Mary is cast aside in favour of her half-sister. Then Anne's star falls and Henry gets his heir. Mary is getting older though and longs for a marriage and child of her own. Finally she ascends to the throne but life gets harder, not easier for this devout woman.
Mary I is a very divisive character and Weir is completely honest when she says that she finds it hard to sympathise. In fact I feel that she has written quite a balanced novel here despite the extremely radical Catholicism that Mary believed in. Every Tudor monarch has their positives and negatives and in this book, Weir tries to show the motivations behind Mary's later actions. What I love about these books is the strong research interwoven wit ( )
