The Life of Queen Elizabeth by Agnes Strickland

I know that Agnes Strickland is regarded as one of the great historical writers, but I found this difficult to read.  It’s wordy, old-fashioned and slow-moving.  The accounts of ceremonies such as the coronation are very vivid and detailed. Also, Strickland provides an excellent analysis of  the strength and resilience of Elizabeth 1's character from her struggles with Thomas Seymour to her dying days. This is certainly worth reading if you want to learn more about this great Queen!

I received this free ebook from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
