    This is THE GRAND FINALE of Philippa's Tudor Court series ladies and gents! And let me tell you, it delivers.

    Disclaimer: An advanced reader copy was generously provided to me by the publisher via NetGalley. Fans of Philippa Gregory will enjoy her newest novel. The name is incredibly misleading, since the last reigning Tudor is only a background character in this novel. It's actually about the three tragic Grey sisters (Jane, Katherine, Mary). Each sister narrates 1/3 of the book. Readers who are unfamiliar with the Tudor court may struggle with this nov...

    Quite fascinating and brings the three girls to life. When you read a history book, and "Katherine Grey was under imprisonment until her death", you sort of file that away. But reading of her hopelessness after losing her firstborn child and husband, how tragic! I'm not certain I even knew anything about Mary Grey at all. A well chosen story

    My favorite thing about Philippa Gregory's books is that you can sit down for an hour and easily turn through half of the story. This 500 page tome took a lot of commitment. Gregory writes from the perspective of the three Grey sisters, Jane, Katherine, and Mary. Jane is the godly one, Katherine is young and reckless, and Mary...well Mary ends up narrating every detail about the fiasco with Mary Queen of Scots and how horrible Queen Elizabeth is....

    This book was received as an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I had hopes to discover a new viewpoint about a trio of sisters that stood perhaps a little too closely to a throne that was guarded so jealously by the Tudors. What this wound up being was a story stretched far too thin on women that either died young or were able to mostly stay out of the spotlight. The book is separated into rough thirds, each part narrated by a ...

    I hate to say it, but this was not my favorite. I was disappointed because I remember being fascinated with Jane Grey in high school and was interested in learning more about her and her sisters. It just kind of drug along with the same continuous plot. I realize you can't change history though. I was happy with the way it ended for at least the one.

    When I saw the two names attached to this book, Tudor and Philippa Gregory, that was all I needed to tap the "Request book" button within a second. My fascination with The Tudors has spanned decades, and no one makes it more digestible than Philippa Gregory. My only misgivings were that I would not find the central figures in this tome that interesting: the "Nine Days Queen", Lady Jane Grey, and her two younger sisters, Lady Katherine and Lady Ma...
