    Dear authors everywhere, Entire chapters in italics are annoying and unnecessary Italics are to emphasize important points If you believe your readers are too stupid to realize when a different character s voice is being used, you 1 are a poor character writer, 2 don t respect your readers and 3 could simply use the device of using the character s name as the chapter title.For the record, I do not read chapters printed entirely in italicized type Therefore, I read only about half of this b Dear authors everywhere, Entire chapters in italics are annoying and unnecessary Italics are to emphasize important points If you believe your readers are too stupid to realize when a different character s voice is being used, you 1 are a poor character writer, 2 don t respect your readers and 3 could simply use the device of using the character s name as the chapter title.For the record, I do not read chapters printed entirely in italicized type Therefore, I read only about half of this book The parts I did read were not too bad

    What would have happened if Queen Elizabeth I had an illegitimate son and he lived to tell the tale This book gives an answer of sorts.The book follows the queen s son s adventures and it also follows the story of Elizabeth and Robert Dudley s relationship.I liked the vivid descriptions about horses,english towns,country life and battles.Although,I found the relationship between Robert and the Queen plausible I felt I couldn t say the same for the story of Arthur Dudley.His exploits seemed far f What would have happened if Queen Elizabeth I had an illegitimate son and he lived to tell the tale This book gives an answer of sorts.The book follows the queen s son s adventures and it also follows the story of Elizabeth and Robert Dudley s relationship.I liked the vivid descriptions about horses,english towns,country life and battles.Although,I found the relationship between Robert and the Queen plausible I felt I couldn t say the same for the story of Arthur Dudley.His exploits seemed far fetched at points but this aspect didn t ruin the book for me as I just kept in mind I was reading fiction and went with the story.If you like loosing yourself in the Tudor era you may want to read this

    I received a Kindle for Christmas which came with 1 month of freePrime This allowed me to pick out 1 book to be lent to my Kindle it will disappear from my books at the end of the month Since I love historical fiction I picked out this book.I m giving it a 3 star rating Would have given it a 4 star rating but it seemed to drag a little in the middle of the story I would still recommend this to those who enjoy historical fiction, especially British history set during the time of El I received a Kindle for Christmas which came with 1 month of freePrime This allowed me to pick out 1 book to be lent to my Kindle it will disappear from my books at the end of the month Since I love historical fiction I picked out this book.I m giving it a 3 star rating Would have given it a 4 star rating but it seemed to drag a little in the middle of the story I would still recommend this to those who enjoy historical fiction, especially British history set during the time of Elizabeth I s reign during the late 1500 s and early 1600 s.The plot is based on the premise of what if Elizabeth I and her long time close friend and possible lover, Lord Robert Dudley who would become the Earl of Leicester , had conceived a child together Evidently the author found in his research of King Philip of Spain that a Arthur Dudley had been arrested in Spain and sent to prison after he had approached a spy Arthur had claimed that he was the bastard son of Queen Elizabeth and Robert Dudley.This novel s strong points are that it is very rich in historical details and as I stated above, it only lagged somewhat in the middle of the story

    If you ever found yourself sitting around after watching the yearly Queen Elizabeth movie and thinking, Man, will the whole Elizabeth story thing EVER get old then this book shouts, YES IT S OLD Had to force myself to finish it Several times, after a few chapters, I felt I d watched some Wal Mart produced, Hallmark channel morality play that a crazed producer decided to set in Elizabethan England instead of the Cracker Barrel esque Smokey Mountains The most redeeming part of the book is If you ever found yourself sitting around after watching the yearly Queen Elizabeth movie and thinking, Man, will the whole Elizabeth story thing EVER get old then this book shouts, YES IT S OLD Had to force myself to finish it Several times, after a few chapters, I felt I d watched some Wal Mart produced, Hallmark channel morality play that a crazed producer decided to set in Elizabethan England instead of the Cracker Barrel esque Smokey Mountains The most redeeming part of the book is that it s nearly ten years old so, hopefully, the movie window for it has closed

    I wish the book focusedon Arthur Dudley and less on the Queen and Robert Dudley I understand the need for historical context, however the switching in perspective was distracting and in my opinion unnecessary.

    Historically the book was good Learned quite a bit about William of Orange and Phillip of Spain that I did not know though I have read many Elizabeth books The character of Arthur however, while apparently historical, was not believable His interactions with Elizabeth and Robin were too contrived, and his survival in battles, etc., unbelievable Would have been nice, but just read too much like a simple fairy tale and not a book to have any merit Disappointing.

    It is the most outstanding book I have read so far The author makes sure to spin the story around the actual story not getting too many characters involved The only fiction part was remained in the the Bastard s part of the story not entirely It is truly an amazing book I would definitely suggest all the historical fiction enthusiasts to pick this book up atleast once during their mortal life

    In this book in which Robin Maxwell draws upon some historic clues to posit that Queen Elizabeth and Robin Dudley had a baby early in their relationship The pregnancy was hidden through cleverness of dressing and also the Queen s summer Progress in which she travels throughout the realm to show her support for the people and gain theirs for herself I am reading this historical fiction just after reading a history of Catherine de Medici, Queen and Queen Regent of France during the Valois reig In this book in which Robin Maxwell draws upon some historic clues to posit that Queen Elizabeth and Robin Dudley had a baby early in their relationship The pregnancy was hidden through cleverness of dressing and also the Queen s summer Progress in which she travels throughout the realm to show her support for the people and gain theirs for herself I am reading this historical fiction just after reading a history of Catherine de Medici, Queen and Queen Regent of France during the Valois reigns Catherine and Elizabeth both were dealing with religious factions and wars within their own kingdoms and had some direct dealings with each other In Robin Maxwell s historical fiction, she makes the idea of this young man, Arthur Dudley Southern, appear as a possible heir to the throne of England but she does not make that a goal for Arthur himself He, like his birth father, is a lover and trainer of horses and his assigned father supports his love of horses and makes sure that he has an appropriate horse for his age Maxwell allows the preteenage Arthur to have some time with Robin Dudley in which Dudley encourages him in his studies as well as his horsemanship She also allowed him to have a shorter amount of time with Elizabeth This occurred when Dudley later, the Earl of Leicester and Elizabeth visited the small estate on which Arthur and his assigned family live His time with Dudley is intimate and personal but his time with Elizabeth is during a hunt in which she finds him a fine fellow hunter As he grows up and then begins to serve as an cavalryman and then a spy within the English army, we as readers are allowed to follow his motivations and the events of his life His adult life fits with the real history of the age and Maxwell outlines how she chose to treat Arthur Dudley as the real son of Robin and Elizabeth I was quite satisfied with this as a piece of historical fiction with a good embedding in actual history.I will stop now rather than give spoilers but the ending of the book was quite satisfactory to me
