Her Mother's Daughter A Novel of ueen Mary Tudor

Reatest betrayer Told by Mary herself and the people around her this grand scale novel takes us back to the glittering court of sixteenth century England and tells the tragic story of a fascinating largely misunderstood woman who withstood the treachery and passion around her only to become one of England's most vilified ueens. This was my first ueen Mary book I had little knowledge of her other than what I saw on The Tudors and had read online I thought that this was a very good book as far as explaining who ueen Mary was and what she had endured throughout her life If this was the only thing that I knew about her I would never truly grasp why she was referred to as Bloody Mary This book does make me want to read to understand her better and why historically she is so disliked as a ueen This book almost candy coated her actionsAll in all this would be a great book for a light Tudor fan read A tip of the iceburg if you will If you do not really want to dive into the specifics of what she did but rather a glimpse into who she was this would be a great book for you But I will want to read books about her because my interest has been peaked

A new novel of sixteenth century royalty from the author of A uestion of Guilt Her name was Mary Tudor First of the Tudor ueens she has gone down in history as 'Bloody Mary' But does she deserve her vicious reputation She was the daughter of Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon and half sister to Edward VI and Elizabeth I Mary T. This is not the subtlest rendition of the life and times of Mary TudorIt s obvious from the prologue that this book was not meant to be read by people who are already knowledgeable about Mary Tudor and her story The book makes it clear that it wants to shatter your preconceived notions about Mary which of course if you ve read a lot about the period have long since been shatteredHistorical events are over simplified and people often seem to be broad brushstrokes of their true selves presumably not to bog the reader down in complex plots or overly detailed motivations The novel states many times the title of the book hammering it into us that yes Mary is in fact Catherine s daughter in both blood and deed We get it It s in the title The constantly switching POVs I found distracting and not effective except in one case that of showing why Mary s people including Catholics started pulling away from her and being disgusted by the burningsIf you know nothing about this time period this is probably a great book to dive into get to know the various people become familiar with the politics and the religion If you are already brushed up on your Tudor knowledge you might do better with a solid biography of Mary Tudor

    I was intrigued by the subject and by the author's intention to offer a different perspective on the monarch affectionately known as Bloody Mary The biggest problem for me was not the fact that the author's attempts to humanize ueen Mary often came at the negative portrayals of those around her for I am sure Henry VIII was no picnic nor was it the unapologetic justification for her later actions as ueens ie

    History has taught us to be sympathetic to Elizabeth Tudor but generally ignores Mary Tudor Henry’s rightful heir from his legal marriage to Catherine of Aragon This book was a sympathetic look into Mary Tudor’s life from her carefree spoiled childhood; to her bewilderment at her father’s marriage to “that whore;

    This novel opened with modern day tweens chanting “Bloody Mary” into a mirror at a slumber party only to have her spirit appear to tell her “real” story That should have been my first clue to give up on this novel The rest of the novel seemed to just gloss over important historical events If someone was not familiar with the people and events of the time they would be completely lost I was hoping for

    Overall this is a great read especially for Tudor fans It shows Mary Tudor as a sensitive and lonely woman with a very sad and troubled life The religious and relationship aspects were well explored But a few extra characters in the book made the story disjuncted at times and distracted from what really matter
