"Higginbotham brings the court to life, including vividly described costumes and customs, while producing a fresh view of the people closest to the top in those turbulent times. Fans of her earlier work or that of Philippa Gregory will enjoy this story about the women of position in an age ruled almost entirely by men." - Booklist
"Higginbotham magnificently weaves together the events leading up to the disinheritance of two royal princesses and the coronation of a young girl more to devoted to books and prayer." - Fresh Fiction
"Higginbotham's idea of telling the story through the eyes of these women is a wonderful way of bringing these events and characters to life. You feel you're there with them and you cannot help but be moved by the events as they unfold." - The Tudor Book Reviews
"Overall, this was a great book with a unique story and I think any fan of historical fiction will enjoy it." - So Many Books, So Little Time
"I enjoyed this one. Definitely recommended." - Readin and Dreamin
"Along with historical accuracy, a swift-moving plot and little family details that any mother would remember and treasure, such as Lady Dudley's talking parrot and Lady Grey's dismay at her daughter's surprising lack of common sense, the novel includes characterizations at which this author excels. She takes the infamous villains of history and presents them as relatable human characters.

This book at times made me smile and then cry with the tragedy. I very much recommend it." - Historical Novels Review
