Just in time for another fortnight, here is my pick for the Letter
I have to say that in this novel, Jean Plaidy did a fantastic job at portraying characters' worst traits. The story was one of intrigue, suspense -which brought out in me, utter disgust for all of the main characters: Queen Elizabeth, Lettice Devereux, Dearest(sarcastically) Robin- Earl of Leicester, and the totally obnoxious Earl of Essex (Lettice's son).
The entanglement of their lives, unhappiness, deviousness and so much more, had me hating each and everyone of these historical figures for awhile...But, one thing is for sure, Plaidy did catch my attention (she always does)- and made it so that I will never forget this book; I was completely hooked and could not put it down!
Read my review, and you'll see what I mean.
