Everybody seems to love the Tudors. I'm not sure quite why they are so popular - is it the fancy clothes, or those eight wives, or what? Many of us, too, are fascinated by the history of women's lives through the ages. So here's a book that speaks to both those interests. I reviewed it for the most recent Shiny New Books and described it as ' a splendid book – highly readable, informative and impressively researched'. If you'd like to read my review you can find it here, and there's also a fascinating interview in the BookBuzz section with the author Elizabeth Norton here.
