SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Better than expectedMarch 15, 2013SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is my second book by Siri Mitchell. I am surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The main reason I didn't give it a 5 is because the way the point of view changes from Marget to Lytham was confusing at times. Usually authors start a new chapter with a new person's perspective and include the name at the beginning of the chapter. Sometimes I had to read a few sentences before I knew who's perspective I was reading.I enjoyed that it wasn't predictable and it wasn't like a typical love story. The era was really fascinating and fun to read about. It was easy for me to get lost in the book.
Mary1 Stars Out Of 5Shallow Love StoryJanuary 29, 2012MaryThis was my first time reading a book by Siri Mitchell and sadly be my last.
I was extremely intrigued of the lifestyle at court during Queen Elizabeths reign. This book gave me a great description of what both men and women of that time went through to receive earthly rewards and a "prosperous" life. As I was reading through it, I was waiting for some christian aspect in this depressing story to appear and was highly disappointed. I felt Marget was some hypocrite of a Christian, if one at all. Im not sure why this book is being sold as a Christian book, with not once the characters showing any sign of a personal relationship with Christ.
amazedOntario CanadaAge: 18-24Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5DisapointedJune 6, 2011amazedOntario CanadaAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I was very much looking forward to reading this book was very disappointed.
I didn't like how the author wrote in first person for both the main characters. It made it difficult to follow who you were reading about and I continually had to skip forward to see the context to understand who was speaking. I read all the time so this is very frustrating to me to have to put so much effort into a novel.
Also, I didn't like the Earl of Lytham's character, he was difficult to relate with and very frustrating for the better part of the book. He was overly selfish and treated Margaret like a leaper because she was beautiful.
Margaret's character was noble in spirit, but frustrating in deliverance. She was also trying to improve on the Earl's station and assist him whenever possible, but she seemed hopelessly naÃÂ¯ve and wasn't willing to stand her ground.
All in all I was quite disappointed.
Brittany1 Stars Out Of 5July 10, 2010BrittanyBeing a History Ed major in college, I love to read historical fiction novels for recreation. This was the first time I have ever read a book by Siri Mitchell and I was not overly impressed. I learned interesting facts about fashion of the day and how deadly it can be, but there were some other things the author presented as fact that I was certain were not valid. First of all, the author said Queen Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII had 7 wives when he only had 6. I was not certain that Queen Elizabeth herself was actually portrayed correctly. Yes, she was was controlling and jealous, but I think some things were exaggerated for effect. To me this book never really seemed to go anywhere, and semed to appeal only to emotion. It was the same problem all throughout with a bunch of random scenes that had no bearing on the story. In my opinion it was not very well developed. The story idea was an excellent, but I don't think it reached its full potential. Like many others I could hardly see where God was an important part of the character's lives, and though scenes between Marget and Lytham were never explicitly described I thought it enough said just by the little that was said and some of the innuendo in it.
becky1 Stars Out Of 5June 12, 2010beckyI was very disappointed in this book. Although it is filled with historical comment, it has too much crude language and sexual content. I bought it to put in the church library but cannot do that with a good conscience. I would rate this more of a cheap dime store novel.
