Really good portrayals, really nice character developments but again moves really fast This is such a fascinating and historically accurate account of the baby race to get an heir to the English throne. My beloved Grandma Leila introduced me to works of Jean Plaidy real name Eleanor Hibbet and also wrote under many pen names including Victoria Holt And so my love affair with historical fiction was born real facts and events brought to life This novel brought to live the absurd race for an heir during the Georgian period The character that most resonated with me in this novel was not the Royals but a wonderful Dorothea Jordan She was a talented actress and the future King Williams s mistress for 20years, bearing him 10 illegitimate children When the race for the heir began, she was discarded by William and died in poverty in France at the age of 54 Her life fascinates me and I want to learn thank you wonderful Eleanor Hibbet for introducing her to me and keeping the memory of Dorothea alive. Love a good story about the royals in England All the plotting and bad behavior made for a decent read. Excellent and entertaining read.I chose five stars, purely due to my enjoyment of the book Plaidy tells an excellent story, and draws the characters very well The atmosphere of the time is well described, and the characters developed with humour and wit The cut and thrust of the era is described in a very dramatic manner Anyone with an interest in Queen Victoria would enjoy this book. Jean Plaidy never fails to deliver a fantastic read.
