Interesting. Sometimes strays from the actual point of the book (i.e., telling about Walsingham's spying escapades), but overall very god read. Good reference materials such as lists of characters, maps, etc.

For those with a basic knowledge of Elizabethan history, this is an interesting book. Note that although the Queen is a major presence (along with Mary Queen of Scots), it's really about Walsingham.
