Books Read in August 2010

Elizabeth and Leicester by Sarah GristwoodThis was an interesting analysis of the romance between Queen Elizabeth 1 and Leicester. It dispelled many myths, such as the legend of the meetings when they were both prisoners in the Tower.

It's not a romantic book but very much a textbook account of the couple. I found the information about Leicester especially interesting. He was apparently 'a man of many parts' who wanted to find out about almost everything - astronomy, science, and exploration, for example. I also didn't realise that he was such a Puritan.

It's a few months since I read this, unfortunately. I should have written my review at the time!

I must apologize for not keeping up to date with this blog - I'll try to catch up.
