The Queen's Governess By Karen Harper



Kat Ashley is well known for her devotion to Queen Elizabeth I. Karen Harper is the one who tells her story flawlessly . Kat is writing a book on her life and in it she shares with us her journey of raising one of England's greatest queens. The story opens with her on the scaffold with Queen Anne as she gives her word to Anne that she will protect and teach Elizabeth. Kat is devoted to this promise to Anne and her daughter that it sometimes lands her in trouble her in the tower.
In the end she sees her "Lovey" take the throne and become the queen for which an age is named.

My Thoughts: I loved this book I loved the relationship between Kat and Elizabeth . The book was beautifully written and really did Kat justice. This is one Tudor book that should be read ths year. Elizabeth really comes to life in this book.

She meets with a young Play write Will Creighton in secret unaware that her secret romance would almost cost her the chance to makea good match. She is sent away to wait on the queen of scots to make amends to the Queen . Only then Rosamund learn that her actions will cost The Queen of Scots and others thier lives.
My Thoughts: I enjoyed this book it is suppose to be more of a historical romance but it didn't feel that way while I was reading it. I was introduced to several new historical figures in the book and was thrilled to do some reserach on them and find out that the Author actually used thier actual cause of death in the book.
