"Elizabeth St.John has brought the early Stuart Court in the years before the English Civil War vividly to life."
Reviews for The Lady of the Tower
A beautifully written book, and a captivating story. That it is based on historical facts, drawn from primary source research, makes it that much more compelling. Ms. St. John has breathed life back into her own ancestors, presenting a fascinating portrait of life at a time of tremendous political upheaval. This is a wonderful read, very difficult to put down once you start! (Amazon)
This wonderful book is richly written using such vivid language that the reader feels transported back in time to the 1600's in England. This book is a must-read for anyone wanting to learn more about this period in history, for those with a love of well-written and researched books, and for those who love reading about strong, ethical, caring women. Lucy is a natural healer and through her recipes and letters the reader learns much about that time period. I loved this book and highly recommend it! (Goodreads)
