When I accepted an ARC for this book I felt based on the promotional blurb that I would be reviewing a historical romance Oh was I wrong This is not on the promotional blurb that I would be reviewing a historical romance Oh was I wrong This is not typical scenario in which the hero and heroine are forced into an arranged marriage but wind up madly in love with each other anyway far from it This is an embellished biography of Audrey Malte one of King Henry VIII s illegitimate children The characters in this novel are not fictional nor are the main events of the story After considerable and detailed research the author has filled in the blanks around the nown and published facts of this time period and has created a readable drama that begins with Audrey s first nown memories and ends just prior to her death The author has crafted a story told primarily in Audrey s first person POV This story moved with a pace placement and consistency of descriptions and dialog that emulated what I would suspect was the speech pattern of the English in the early 1500 s As I read it felt as if I Were An Intimate And an intimate and observer the proverbial fly on the wall It also felt like I was back in a History or English Lit classroom with that instructor who could absolutely breathe life into those old dull events of the past The writing was smooth and the scenes and chapters flowed naturally from one to the next But for me it was far from an entertaining read From the very first chapter we learn that the heroine is dying and this casts a pall and a depression over the entire story And if the reader remembers anything about the reign of Henry VIII the political and religious persecutions the Tower of London the executions by beheading with drawing and uartering he or she will now nothing good is going to come out of a story that centers on a personage so closely related to the ing himselfSo if you read for escapism you might want to think a bit before embarking on this book or the series from which it stems Because what you re not going to escape from are 332 pages of fear persecution death and unreuited love What you are not going to escape from is page after page of waiting for the proverbial other shoe to drop and it drops a lotWhat you re not going to escape from is the misogynistic and chauvinistic actions of men toward women in those times And what you re not going to escape from are the scenes that depict women and children as commodities expendable commoditiesBut what you are definitely not going as commodities expendable commoditiesBut what you are definitely not going escape from is the fact that the only happy ending is still being alive at the end of a dayThis book starts with terror and ends with heartbreak It may be the story of a child of the ing and a court laundress complete with wicked stepsister but this is not the fairy tale This new novel in the “wonderfully absorbing” Library Journal Secrets of the Tudor Court series features a tailor’s daughter who suspects she is an illegitimate offspring of King Henry VIIIAudrey Malte born about 1528 and raised at court by the ing’s tailor John Malte was led to believe she is Malte’s. ,
