So enjoyed your talk the other week here at Uffculme W.I.
I bought your book then and I really couldn't put it down .It was a wonderful read.
I love the Tudor period of history and having visited many of the principal houses in Devon it was great to read about the interaction of some of the major Devonian families at that time with all that was going on in London and around the world.
It was lovely to follow the life story of an interesting Tudor lady.
A really enjoyable read ..Well done Rosemary.

Beautifully written

An engaging read about the mother of Sur Walter Raleigh. I was captivated from the very first page. Well researched and a nice to read about a real historical figure that isn't a king it queen. Hope this author does more in the same vein.

After listening to your really interesting and inspiring talk on Zoom with the DFHS I bought your book which I have just finished. I enjoyed it so much and having read a lot from the Tudor period it was so good to read about it from the Devon perspective especially being a Devon girl myself and knowing all the places in it. You brought everything to life so vividly. Thank you so much. I shall look forward to your nextbook.

I enjoyed this thoroughly

I enjoyed this thoroughly. A quick and untaxing read which aims to flesh out a woman recorded in history but lightly.
