Absolutely unputdownable. ―Kate Williams, author of England's Mistress. Sarah Gristwood's study of the brilliant, beleaguered, and often bloody difficult women who kept Europe going in the sixteenth century is compelling, clear-eyed, beautifully rendered, and never-more-timely. ―Jessie Childs, author of God's Traitors: Terror and Faith in Elizabethan England.

Perhaps a key understanding of the Sixteenth century can be best gleaned by the difference in the country between the end of the Fifteenth and the start of the Seventeenth: Just fifteen years before the sixteenth century began, the king (Henry VII) ascended the throne by right of conquest and the slaying of the incumbent king on the field of battle. And just forty-nine years after the end of the sixteenth century the king (Charles I) was executed by Act of Parliament and replaced by the Commonwealth

Lisa Hopkins gives us history from a different point of view in this unique book that focuses on the noble women of the sixteenth century. The book is, of course, nonfiction, but it reads like a soap opera complete with women who have affairs, go crazy, experience failed marriages, miscarriages and every emotional crisis you can imagine. Hopkins gives us a new perspective on how women were used to consolidate the power of the patriarchal male hierarchy of the time. She illustrates how instrumental some women were. She tells the story of women who were the sisters, mothers and daughters of kings and finishes with the unique and diverse histories of women who were rulers in their own right. This book is an enjoyable read for anyone interested in the history of the time. It is integral for the bookshelf of anyone that values women's history in particular.

I read this book for a history class I was taking. My assignment was to write a book review. My paper was 5 pages. So I will try to keep it short. This book is easy to read for enjoyment, it only took me a few days to finish. However, if you are reading it for research purposes, forget it. You truly need to be familiar with the genealogy of the royals in the 16th century to follow the author. I found myself trying to sketch out family trees for all the characters involved so I could keep up with which Henry was related to which Mary. Don't be turned off, it is enjoyable and interesting to read about the real lives of these women and their true ambitions.
