Reatest betrayer Told by Mary herself and the people around her this grand scale novel takes us back to the glittering court of sixteenth century England and tells the tragic story of a fascinating largely misunderstood woman who withstood the treachery and passion around her only to become one of England's most vilified ueens. The author is trying to convince us thatMary Tudor doesn t deserve her nickname of Bloody Mary Unfortunately the book pretty much confirms that she was a petty strong minded woman who refused to listen to the moderate advice of her council that killing Protestants was not good for England This book cast her as growing up feeling misused by the whores that her father married It implies that if it was okay for Henry to kill Catholics then it was also okay for Mary to kill Protestants I knew all the historical details already The first chapter with girls at a pajama party chanting Bloody Mary was just stupid The sections about commoners and hat they thought were mostly extraneous things that should have been left out Switching between Mary narrating and third person was a bit irritating although it was easy to tell because all of the first person parts were in italics

Her Mother's Daughter A Novel of ueen Mary Tudor

Udor's life began as the sweetly innocent pampered Princess Of Wales Until the age of eleven when the father she adored cast her aside and the mother she worshipped declared Mary 'a bastard' Only after years of exile did Mary finally rise to the throne alongside the man who aside from her father was her greatest love and her g. History has taught us to be sympathetic to Elizabeth Tudor but generally ignores Mary Tudor Henry s rightful heir from his legal marriage to Catherine of Aragon This book was a sympathetic look into Mary Tudor s life from her carefree spoiled childhood to her bewilderment at her father s marriage to that whore to banishment and loss of title struggle to maintain her faith loyalty to her mother and father and her marriageThe sexism in this book was rampant and only emphasized for me Elizabeth s savvy in never marrying The conversations in the throne room where courtiers don t know whether to address the ueen or her lower in rank husband are astonishing Eventually everyone speaks to Phillip because everyone know that the man is ruler of his wife But if Philip is not the king and Mary must make the decision who really is in chargeI liked reading about the historical time from many different perspectives a city thief a French Courtier a country farmer and Mary Tudor herself although the book opens with a few girls playing Bloody Mary at a slumber party and never references them again The book was written from many points of view allowing Mary to narrate both as first person and as third person Mary s faith also seemed important to her in a way that history suggested but never showed before at least not in books I ve read Mary trembles in fear for her mortal soul if not allowed to say mass while narratives of Elizabeth s life treat her relationship with God to be one similar to her relationship with Henry Tudor I would definitely read something by this author again

A new novel of sixteenth century royalty from the author of A uestion of Guilt Her name was Mary Tudor First of the Tudor ueens she has gone down in history as 'Bloody Mary' But does she deserve her vicious reputation She was the daughter of Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon and half sister to Edward VI and Elizabeth I Mary T. Julianne Lee attempts to bring to modern day readers the sympathetic view of Mary Tudor the misunderstood ueen of the sixteenth century ueen Mary did not have an easy life and the author immediately sets off to show her readers the myriad of different situations that she was placed in due to the fact that she was the daughter of King Henry VIII Most Tudor era fans know the story of this Mary Tudor who was otherwise known as Bloody Mary due to her excessive execution of heretics She was the only surviving issue of Catherine of Aragon and Henry VIII at first treated as a princess should be until Henry divorced her mother Yet it is her younger half sister Elizabeth I who gets the credit for being a strong female monarch in the sixteenth centuryThe author shows how Mary may have felt when she was told by her mother that her father was divorcing her which jeopardized Mary s own status She was stripped of her princess title and simply became Lady Mary We see how Mary was indeed her mother s daughter embracing the Catholic religion with zeal as this was the only constant in her life The story the author tells focuses on Mary s life and the major events that occurred around her although we very uickly advance in the author s telling to Henry marrying Anne Boleyn beheading her and taking Jane Seymour as a wife Throughout this period we are privy to Mary s personal thoughts as she despises Anne yet yearns for her place at her father s side Henry is portrayed as unfeeling and callous towards his daughter Mary but as doting on Elizabeth when she was a baby Obviously for the sake of the story itself this works well in the author s favor for attempting to achieve sympathy for Mary How much of this is factual is for another bookWe blink and Henry is dead and his only sickly son Edward is on the throne at age 9 I don t even recall the sixth wife being mentioned With the bulk of the book being told in third person we are privy to the council meetings and the thoughts that the council members had about Mary being a Catholic twenty four year old potential claimant to the throne never mind the fact that she was a woman Mary is shown as very insecure very pious and of ill health Whenever she was stressed it put her in a dangerous state of illness Mary had feared poison from the heretic Protestant factions and was beginning to lose faith in her own father s loyalty and regard for family ties She always felt he would never execute her because of the fact that she was his daughter but Henry was a ruthless man and did not like being refused his reuests This reuest in uestion which spanned the first half of the book that Henry demanded of her was going against the very grain of Mary s Catholic faith for Henry wanted Mary to recognize him as having authority over the church and the pope Mary finally felt that she could no longer trust in her faith to keep her alive It seems Mary s only friend was her imperial ambassador Eustace Chapuys He advised her in most things and she is shown as relying on him at critical times just as he advised her to accept the Act of Supremacy although with a helpful caveat Upon doing so Mary was finally allowed some peace and was welcome at her father s court after this long battle She failed in the very things she lived for such as having children and restoring England to the Catholic faith and perhaps it was this failure that distressed her so much that caused her illnesses But even through these failures she unknowingly taught Elizabeth what to do or not do once Elizabeth ruled What makes this novel uniue is the way it opened up with a modern day setting and then the rest of the story is being told in an almost flashback fashion as Mary periodically appears as she explains what happens next The chapter would open up with an italicized paragraph of Mary speaking her mind and that chapter would tie itself into that foreshadowing opening paragraph Also uniue are the extras to the novel There are commoners from thieves to family men that have their chance to their story in this novel as well Through their eyes we get a broad scope of what the political and religious turmoils that the people in England were subject to and this also helped keep the novel intriguingAs a Tudor junkie I enjoyed it As a historical fiction reader I loved it There is nothing that I can say in hindsight that I think the author should have done differently The writing flowed simply and I was entertained by the clever outline of the novel with the diary style entries by Mary and the outlooks from the commoners This was a uniue approach towards a story that has been told many times before but truly gives a realistic touch towards the humanity of Bloody Mary The author successfully portrayed Mary in a favorable light as we begin to understand the depth of Mary s faith and the mechanisms behind it As the story progresses we are empathetic towards Mary as we witness the accounts of the relationships that Mary had with her family and her controversial husband Philip of Spain For the many readers who like to focus on the Tudor era this is a read that must be added to your library both for its original storytelling and the uniue approach with which the author utilizes to tell this compelling story of Mary Tudor I enjoyed this new novel by Julianne Lee so much so that I will be looking for her previous historical fiction read A uestion of Guilt A Novel of Mary ueen of Scots and the Death of Henry Darnley Oct 7 2008 which focuses on another ueen Mary that I have not had a lot of sympathy for either After reading Her Mother s Daughter A Novel of Mary Tudor by Julianne Lee I am definitely much sympathetic to the views of Bloody Mary and understanding of why she seemed a bit over the top I recommend this one to those interested in the Tudor era and for historical fiction fans in general The Light In The Window the author of A uestion of Guilt Her name was Mary Tudor First of Three Entertainments the Tudor ueens she has gone down in history as 'Bloody Mary' But does she deserve her vicious reputation She was Lissa the daughter of Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon and half sister Lissa to Edward
