Letter of Love By Virginia Henley

Letter Of LoveSummary:
This short story is set in Elizabethan times.
At Hampton Court Palace, Queen Elizabeth has arranged a marriage for her ward Burgundy Bedford with Lord Nicholas Mountjoy, Earl of Devon.
This union will join two great shipping families and provide Mountjoy with vessels to transport his troops to Ireland to quell the uprising led by Tyrone of Ulster.
Burgundy plans to thwart the queen, as her mother did before her, by eloping the day before the wedding.
Burgundy comes into possession of an ancient book passed down through two centuries from mother to daughter.
Between the pages of the book, Burgundy finds a letter written to her by her mother when her daughter was born.
The book's ancient legacy and the letter of love touches her heart and alters the course of her life forever.
My Thoughts:Although I enjoyed the story it left alot to be desired. The story felt rushed but the characters were interesting. I would have liked to know more about the mother and her relationship with the Queen. I can't complain too much because it was a free book. I just wish it wasa bit longer.
