What My Readers Say…

Couldn’t put this book down. Modern day Lydia Hamilton lives in Canada and Elisabeth Beeton story played out around the Court of Henry VIII. Time change between the centuries is cleverly done by the author. Lydia and Elisabeth’s lives keep the reader captivated til the end.

I enjoyed the first edition, but the new update is awesome – the plot is tight and fast paced, the characters well defined and the ending leaves you waiting for more! The historical sections have been beefed up even more realistic and cleverly woven into the modern day scenario. What fun!
