Julianne Lee Ö 9 review review Ô E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ö Julianne Lee review Her Mother's Daughter A Novel of ueen Mary Tudor A new novel of sixteenth century royalty from the author of A uestion of Guilt Her name was Mary Tudor First of the Tudor ueens she has gone down in history as 'Bloody Mary' But does she deserve her vicious reputation She was the daughter of Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon and half sister to Edward VI and Elizabeth I Mary T. I was intrigued by the subject and by the author s intention to offer a different perspective on the monarch affectionately known as Bloody Mary The biggest problem for me was not the fact that the author s attempts to humanize ueen Mary often came at the negative portrayals of those around her for I am sure Henry VIII was no picnic nor was it the unapologetic justification for her later actions as ueens ie being banished and declared illegitimate by her father her nearly life long persecution for adherence to the old religion Its simply the fact that as a whole the book is not very well written I found the changing points of view and interspersed stories of the English commoners distracting clunky and lacking whatever effect the author so clearly meant to convey

This novel opened with modern day tweens chanting Bloody Mary into a mirror at a slumber party only to have her spirit appear to tell her real story That should have been my first clue to give up on this novel The rest of the novel seemed to just gloss over important historical events If someone was not familiar with the people and events of the time they would be completely lost I was hoping for depth insight but instead it was choppy and poorly written Her childhood was breezed through I think the entire history of Anne Boylen s impact on her life was only a few sentences long her time banished from court lacked any depth and the attempt of Jane Grey and her family to take over the throne was less than a chapter long These were key events in England but they were glossed over as if they were of little import I would much rather have read a longer novel that covered her life and key people in the court with much depth and description instead of a short novel that tries to cram everything in without going into too much detail Very disappointed

Julianne Lee Ö 9 review review Ô E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ö Julianne Lee review Her Mother's Daughter A Novel of ueen Mary Tudor Reatest betrayer Told by Mary herself and the people around her this grand scale novel takes us back to the glittering court of sixteenth century England and tells the tragic story of a fascinating largely misunderstood woman who withstood the treachery and passion around her only to become one of England's most vilified ueens. This was so superficial I could hardly stand it And so full of modern words and idea it was ridiculous I m having a hard time coming up with some redeeming ualitiesumit was relatively short One dimensional characters an author who seems to have very little understanding of tudor life and an absolute ridiculous voice of Mary Steer clear folks
