My review of ‘Mary I: Queen of Sorrows’ by Alison Weir

(c) Headline Review

‘Mary I: Queen of Sorrows’ is the sort of book where you look forward to your morning commute, as it gives you a chance to read more!

Alison Weir has taken the well-known events of the reigns of the Tudors and shown them as Mary’s story from beloved Princess to illegitimate daughter, the dangers of being Catholic heir to the throne during her brother’s reign, her courage in fighting for the throne and the difficulties she faced as Queen.

In doing so, Weir has portrayed a very human Mary and crafted a compelling tale, while not shying away from the horrors of her reign.

Thank you to Headline Review and Net Galley for my review copy
