    3.5 stars. Worth reading for the last chapter alone, for the description of Holy Mass by her majesty's deathbed, but otherwise not as engaging as I'd hoped. Perhaps I've been spoilt by reading two other Benson novels which had much better characterisation and pace in my opinion. 3.5 stars.

    This was an excellent novel, marred only by the dreadful print on demand format. English, Latin, and French all were mangled beyond legibility. The worst (best?) was the description of Mary Tudor and Philip of Spain as King and Queen of England and Spam. "Now England and Spam are one!" Oh, a moment of Pythonesque levity in the midst of tragedy! A work well worth reading, but not in this edition. This was an excellent novel, marred only by the dreadful print on demand format.

    Book about Good Queen Bess and Bloody Mary. Never really read a book based in this time period so it should be interesting! BTW, the book was written by a priest.
