I had just finished reading Philippa Gregory's latest book, so decided to read this which followed right on the heals of that in history. Such good timing since I was already familiar with the royal fool, Will Somers, from The Taming of the Queen.

I feel as if I have read this one before...

This novel intrigued me because, though I've read several historical fiction books concerning the machinations of various figures of English royalty, I've never heard of Hannah. And, it turns out, for good reason. It's still a good read, but I'm so used to Gregory's main characters being "real" people that I was deeply disappointed to discover the truth behind Hannah's life.

I really enjoyed this book. I started reading it just to have something to read. It kept me entertained up to the end. This time in history has always fascinated me and I'm glad to be able to learn more of the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth through it.

A story that shows the hardship of being Jewish during Bloody Mary's terrifing reign.

I thought this book was okay. Wasn't my favorite of the series by Philippa Gregory, but was pretty good. The story of Hannah the Fool was interesting and was a good backdrop to show the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth after their father and brother's deaths.
