This novel is beautifully written, I was fascinated with Katherine’s story and how it tied into Queen Elizabeth’s period. I love the characters in this book. Kat is a strong protagonist and she’s very outspoken which is not what one would expect in her era for a woman. The depiction of Queen Elizabeth is fascinating. I was also intrigued by the inner working of the Queen’s court. I loved the details about the designs and stitch work on the Queen’s gowns. Crowley did an amazing job with the imagery, it was like viewing everything through Kat’s eyes and I relished every minute of it. I wish I could express how outstanding this book is, but I can’t find the words because it is much more than what I’ve written but I don’t want to spoil anything. Find out for yourself!
