There is something so fascinating to me about the Elizabethan era and about Queen Elizabeth herself – her story, her manner, and all the intrigue that surrounded her life. Although we hear a lot about her, there is still something profoundly mysterious about her too. That’s why it is an especially intriguing angle to tell the story from Kat’s perspective – a mysterious red-haired orphan who his searching for her identity and finds it in QE’s court.
To say I was enthralled is an understatement. In fact, I wish it could have been even longer than its’ 416 pages because Kat was such an appealing character to hang out with – curious, bright, passionate, and unpredictable. I loved the vividly realized historical details of the court and fashions of the time. Oh and I loved the writing – especially this line:
Grace had always said something similar – that God sent us coincidences to warn us a bigger truth was on its way. (p 264)
