More than four hundred years ago, seven people – five of them women – were beheaded in the Tower of London. Three had been Queens of England. The others were found guilty of treason. Why were such powerful people put to death?
Alison Weir’s gripping book tells their stories: from the former friend betrayed by a man set on being king, to the youngest girl killed after just nine days on the throne. Through her vivid writing, Alison Weir brings history alive. (Taken from back cover)
This was short read (less than 100 pages), that I read while I was trying to decide what I wanted to read next. It was full of interesting stories of how all seven historical figures were beheaded in the Tower of London.
Alison Weir always writes with such historical accuracy and instantly transports into the period of time that she is writing about.
This was an interesting read that I would recommend to historical fiction fans, when they are in between books.
