BRITISH AUTHOR CHALLENGE JUNE - FRASER & CONRAD in 75 Books Challenge for 2016 (december 2016)

Besprekingen

Boeiende en onderhoudende studie van het onderwerp. De auteur houdt goed haar focus. Het gaat haar over de persoonlijkheid van van de koninginnen en niet over Hendrik VIII. Vooral de personaliteit van koningen Catharina en van Catherine Parr maakte indruk op mij.
