This book was fantastic, with charm as historic fictions have been known to offer. The first part focusing on Lady Katherine Grey, the second part focusing on Mary Rogers, Elizabeth I stands out regardless, as expected, and all three characters are depicted with realism and the ability to relate to them in different ways.
