I liked this novel as it had quite alot of information about the early life and experience of Elizabeth I. I do not necessarily agree with Weir's view of history-she tends to take a very traditional view and I prefer authors that can view previous knowledge in a new and interesting way. ( )

A truly stunning tale of Elizabeth's life from the time of her mother's death and her own loss of position, to her exile and suspicion under her sister Mary's reign, to her own triumphant beginning as Queen Elizabeth I.

Weir is a historian of the Tudor era, and infuses her story with historical facts while still bringing the characters alive with thoughts and emotions.

This is an excellent read for anyone who enjoys stories about the Tudors. ( )

Interesting book. I am a big fan of Alison Weir's non-fiction, and Elizabeth I is probably my favorite historical person. This book was well written and easy to read, without being condescending. I did enjoy her foray into the 'what if' world concerning the episode with Thomas Seymour. We will never know for certain all that did-or did not-occur. This book would certainly be a good place for a newcomer to Elizabeth, to start. ( )

What can possibly be left to say about Queen Elizabeth I that hasn't already be said? For the fervent fan of the monarch, about all that is left is for the author to handle the story skillfully, or to attempt to find an unexplored viewpoint.

Weir has chosen the former here, and does a fine job of inhabiting both the world and the mind of the young Elizabeth, from the death of Ann Boleyn to the death of Queen Mary Tudor. The historical material is presented, along with fictional speculation about Elizabeth's relationship with her stepfather, Thomas Seymour, and the princess / lady / princess / heir-to-the-crown's internal struggles with the notion of marriage. Or not.

The thing one takes away, always, from well-told history (or historical fiction) about this remarkable woman, is how well she played a very real -- and very dangerous -- Game of Thrones, and did so from the moment of Henry VIII's death, when she was but fourteen years old.

'The Lady Elizabeth' would be a fine introduction into historical fiction of the Tudor era, and an enjoyable interlude for readers already familiar with the story. ( )

Reading Alison Weir's fiction is like eating a candy bar. You know it can't be good for you because it is so full of fat, calories and artificial ingredients, but it is so yummy and delicious that you can't help yourself. ( )
