This book reads like a history textbook that sometimes has dialogue in it. By the time I gave up reading, nothing had really HAPPENED. There was no insight into what Elizabeth thought about what was happening. There was just stuff being said to happen. I know it was kind of the style when this book was written to tell not show, but it's 2023 and there's a huge amount of novels about young Elizabeth Tudor that are written in an engaging manner while still being historically accurate.
