Touted as the next Jean Plaidy, this author doesn't even come close! Pedantic, with dumb downed prose, she makes history look like a day in the 21st century. Historical details completely lacking, Susan Higginbotham uses this only create a story based in her imagination, which is absolutely uninspired. Blah doesn't begin to describe the actual storyline, it goes more like this - blah, blah, blah. Using historical figures in a way that is highly unhistorical, I didn't find any pleasure in reading at all.
I like this author, and she makes her characters interesting and human. For those who enjoy historical fiction it captures the time and the place well and is an easy book to get through.
One of the best historical novels I have read in a long time. Beautifuly written, and if you enjoy a good romance, pick it up!
