    I loved this story of historic fiction I have recently become a huge Tudor obsessive and Robin Maxwell is my favorite author in the fictionalized versions This book covers a fairly short period of time, from the death of Henry VIII to the execution of Thomas Seymo...

    I have for a while now, been fascinated by the early years of Elizabeth I What created this great woman who was one of the greatest rulers of England ever, the queen who refused to marry though her suitors included some of the most powerful monarchs of Europe at the time.It has been theorized, that the Elizabeth, whose mother was branded a whore and executed when Elizabeth was only three years old, and a few years later a similar fate meted out to her young stepmother Katherine Howard, never married because she associated marriage with death.In this exciting and moving book, Robin Maxwell explore the young princesses life at Chelsea House where she was sent to live with her stepmother the Queen Dowager Katherine Parr, after the death of her father Henry VIII, and the ascension to the throne of her younger brotherEdward VI.While the Queen dowager gave Elizabeth love and was the only mother Elizabeth was known, Queen Katherine s husband Sir Thomas Seymour, charismatic and irresistible to women, sets his sights on the vulnerable and innocent young princes Elizabeth.Seymour lures the young princess into sexual interplay, and in a strange twist there are incidents where the Queen Dowager herself, driven mad by the evil of Seymour, helps him to abuse Elizabeth.Through suffering Elizabeth is strengthened, into the...

    If you re a follower of my blog, then surely you know that of all English monarchs, Elizabeth I is in No way my favouriteSorry but that s just the way it is There s just something cold, calculating and non feeling about her for me..yet, I keep reading and books on her There s something intriguing about her that s for sure Or maybe, I just won t allow myself to believe that what you see is what you get and nothing so far has really moved me to change my opinion of herUntil Virgin Prelude to the Throne, by Maxwell This is the story of Elizabeth from about the age of 13 to 15 don t kid yourself, this is not children s literature Major things happen to Elizabeth and England within these two years to spur England into a series of dramatic turnabouts that it would be impossible to write off this important time period.Elizabeth is being raised by her step mother, the Dowager Queen Catherine and her husband, Thomas Seymour With Kat as her guardian lady in waiting, you would think that Elizabeth had a dandy ole time with this wonderful mom and dashing dadPoor Elizabeth, nothing could be farther from the truth.Elizabeth endures such traumatic episodes that no child of that age should ever go th...

    The historical part of this story is not very believable I give a 2 however the enjoyment factor ofthe story I give a 4 making it a 3 I enjoyed it but did not believe it I learned long ago to seperate the two because I m not a historical scholor nor a literary snob but I like what I like and my historical FICTION does not have to be always spot on accurate I m smart enough not to believe anything that is in the FICTION realm Some authors should not call themselves historians however I m not making any sense am I Well sorry if you want an enjoyable story loosely dealing with the Life of Elizabe...

    The title s a bit melodramatic, but this book was pretty good It s about Elizabeth I, covering her dangerous infatuation flirtation with Thomas Seymour Elizabeth was in her early teens at the time, but was very intelligent and astute However, she still fell into the snare of Seymour, a cold, ambitious, manipulative, yet overwhelmingly charismatic man.Maxwell does a great job with portraying the ambitions of the Tudor nobility and the courtly intrigue they engag...

    I usually love historical fiction, especially about the Tudors, but this was poorly written and the characters were unbelievable The random jumping of point of view also contributed to the lackluster reading experience Sad that such an interesting story was told so poorly

    Interesting novel looking at Elizabeth s life when she was living with Catherine Parr and Thomas Seymour, and the period after Catherine s death leading up to Thomas execution.Well written and researched It all hangs together plausibly A good read for any fan of Elizabethan fiction.

    This was an interesting read which shed light on the patriarchy of the time period and the ways in which things were done Overall, I enjoyed the book, though I wish it had covered a few years rather than quickly summing them up at the end.

    Maxwell touts this as a part of Elizabeth history that has been largely ignored until now Not sure I agree with that as this was not a new story for me It is interesting take on some of the events when Elizabeth was residing with her step mother and Tom Seymour.

    I have a Tudor bug now, it seems, and have been picking at the books dealing with that era in my TBR pile Today s selection, Robin Maxwell s novel Virgin Prelude to the Throne, is a rather short and somewhat overblown novel dealing with a rather short period of Elizabeth Tudor s life the two years following her father s death What is historical record is that Thomas Seymour, one of the uncles of the young king Edward VI, secretly married the Dowager Queen, Catherine Parr, within a few months of Henry s death in January 1547 Seymour took up residence in Catherine s household at Chelsea House, where Princess Elizabeth was also living Later accounts suggest that Seymour was sexually aggressive toward Elizabeth during this period, and that eventually she was sent away from Chelsea House to live in Sir Anthony Denny s household at Cheshunt.Meanwhile, Catherine Part became pregnant, and died shortly following the birth of her daughter Mary Seymour Now free, Thomas Seymour attempted to press his suit with Elizabeth At the same time, Seymour was planning a coup to remove his brother Edward Seymour, the Lord Protector, from power and assume control of the young king himself Thomas S...
