Katherine has to employ all her instincts to navigate the treachery of the court, drawing a tight circle of women around her, including her stepdaughter, Meg, traumatized by events from their past that are shrouded in secrecy, and their loyal servant Dot, who knows and sees more than she understands. With the Catholic faction on the rise once more, reformers being burned for heresy, and those close to the king vying for position, Katherine’s survival seems unlikely. Yet as she treads the razor’s edge of court intrigue, she never quite gives up on love.

Yes... a review.. I can do this.. I guess. You know when you read a book and you are like.. yeah this is nice. The story does take a hold of you. You are involved. But when you finish it you are not really sure what you feel about a book. That was me with Queens Gambit. I enjoyed the story. The characters where alive but I missed something and I am not sure what. I had a week now to consider what I really felt and it just does not flare a spark of love or something with me. Still while reading I was really into the story. So I am just going to say "If you like Tudor books you can safely read this. It is not as strong as Gregory but enjoyable in it's own way"
