Honor Larke is unusual for her time Catholics persecuted protestants while protestants persecuted Catholics All Honor knows is these people have done nothing to deserve to be burned While serving ueen Catherine she is drawn into intrigue to save protestants Along the way she meets Richard Thornleigh who helps her while danger stalks their heels Eramus also appears here A thriller within a romance I read this with a racing heart never knowing what the next page will bringBarbara Kyle brings an element Gully Dirt: On Exposing the Klan, Raising a Hog, and Escaping the South of danger and risk as well as a cleverly twisting plot to this tale that ends all too soon but continues with her next book The King s Daughter I read this years ago when it was A Dangerous Temptation Theld edition looks like a romance novel the new Kelttiläistarinoita one looks like a Philippa Gregory novel but bothf these impressions are kind f misleading There s a romance yeah but the novel focuses mainly n the religious tensions in 16th century Europe and how the various sects tortured burned and Uomini ad Auschwitz: Storia del più famigerato campo di sterminio nazista otherwiseppressed anyone who believed differently Engrossing if you re a historical fiction buff but incredibly bleak for long stretches As posted at wwwjustonechaptercomHere I sit and sigh as

Ries I forced myself to get through it but nly because I hate leaving books unfinished even the terrible La maga delle spezie ones I always hope that the story will surprise me Thisne did not it was just bad from the first page to last The plot was ridiculously predictable and tedious I was pleasantly surprised by this book thinking it would be a straight by the numbers romance It s actually a theological drama with some intrigue a bit The Last Testament of romance and adventure The heroine Honor Larke is Thomas More s ward which provides some hokey sinful thoughtsn Sir Tom s part and she gets swept up in the Catholic vs Protestant upheavals She engages in long distance dissertations with Erasmus and is uite a bright girl but not preciously so The final part f the book finds Honor trapped in Leyden with John and the Anabaptists where the lesson that power corrupts even the most holy is made abundantly clear Giacomo Meyerbeer wrote an pera about itI found the central thesis Run to the Roar: Coaching to Overcome Fear of religious sects very fascinating It gripped my interest thoroughly because it was so not what I thought it would be Thenly less than stellar parts involved More s sexual conflict towards Honor both in the beginning and then at the end The scenes were stilted and jarring to the rest The Art of Teaching the Bible: A Practical Guide for Adults of the book The relationship between Honor and Thornleigh the hero is basedn business and running a Protestant underground Gaudi of sorts Not conventional in the slightestThis book and its seuel A Dangerous Devotion have been re released as The ueen s Lady and The King s Daughter respectively I found Barbara Kyle s The ueen s Lady to be a bit hit miss On the positive side there were a lotf twist and turns to the story which keeps you guessing what is going to happen next The Tudor history is captivating in itself and this story just
shows another viewpoint The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, Vol. 2 of Henry VIII Anne Boleyn and the political and religious playersf the another viewpoint Astrología para principiantes of Henry VIII Anne Boleyn and the political and religious playersf the On the negative side there was a loss Amen: what prayer can mean in a world beyond belief of coherency to the story as it seemed the author wanted to present all the differing religious viewsf the time making the story unnecessarily complex Some No Puedo Perderte of the plot particularly about the M nsterites and Anabaptists was uite strange There is so much goingn the story its confusing and I think the chapter divisions would have benefited from an accompanying timeline and not just a specific title If you would like to read a similar story historical fiction strong female protagonist and a minor study in religious views In Every Heartbeat of the time I would try Phillipa Gregory s The ueen s Fool All this said I think I will read the seuel about Isabella Thornleigh Note that this book was first published in 1994 as A Dangerous Temptation The seuel featuring Isabella Thornleigh was previously published as A Dangerous Devotion and will be published in February 24 2009 as The King s Daughter I think the timingf the books are suspect riding The Seraphim Code on the wavef popularity Sortemesse of The Other Boleyn Girl current pop culture interest in The TudorsSeef my reviews at Where I got the book freebie at
