I didn't want this one to end. I've totally enjoyed this novel. Love the way that Rosemary Griggs wrote this story.

My only frustration besides the book ending, was that on the sections where Walter was speaking, the kerning drove me nuts.

This book is well worth the read.

Well written story giving interest to history

A brilliant 1st novel, well worth reading. Rosemary Griggs obviously put much time and thought into researching the people and places associated with the central character, weaving a colourfully poignant story around historical records. The book breathes life into places that I now want to revisit. The nobility relationships with their religious and political struggles gave great insight to the events and background to famous names. Can't wait for her next novel.

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.
