Although I do like my historical fiction with a little more splendor, this was a perfect addition to my Tudor fiction collection.
In my opinion I've always imagined the child Elizabeth as she's depicted here, as I imagine all of Henry's children were growing up really; both in fear and admiration of the "terrible Tudor", and yet yearning for even the slightest hint of affection, whether it be a simple compliment or a wink. Elizabeth seems to be torn between the fact that the man everyone seems to adore is basically her mother's killer and the fact he's the only parent she has left. Although Kat is in her life, there really is no substitution for one's real mother.
To be honest, I was initially worried when I first purchased this. I hadn't read a Royal Diaries book since I was in the sixth grade and couldn't remember how in detail they were. Would Anne Boleyn have been beheaded and said beheading thereafter be riddled with rumours for weeks, or would we hear a few 'flowery' sentences about "my mother's execution" and then be off the subject? I happily was not disappointed. Some more intimate and gruesome things are sidestepped and/or made non-explicit (these are children's books after all, historical though they may be.)
I also like that both Mary and Anne were described as "not quite right in the head." I'm sure Henry's treatment of Mary and her mother as well as the way Anne acted towards her undoubtedly made her a bit "not quite right"; the same goes for Anne. Considering all she went through in life (losing Percy, the pushing from her family, being pursued by Henry, the need to produce an heir, must I go on?) surely made her a bit "not quite right" as well, rather than the viper tongued, power hungry villainess everyone loves to make her out to be.
This really is an excellent addition to anybody's Tudor library, and a good way to start out young adults on fiction about one of the strongest women to ever live.
This book is VERY well written and holds your attention and you really do want to know more...
