I immensley enjoyed this novel by Eve Edwards.
You would imagine a historical novel set in 1582 to be dull and lifeless, but The Other Countess is anything but that.
Bursting at the seams with characters that leap off the page, settings that amplify the novel to the max and stunning writing, The Other Countess will leave you breathless and wanting more.
I recommend this book for Women aged 13+. When I say this, in my opinion, even an adult would enjoy this book.
This book encapsulates vivid characters, detailed descriptions and manages to intertwine certain truthful historical events in one addictive, delightful debut novel that should be on anyone's must-read list.
One of my favourite books ever, The Other Countess is not to be missed.
Look out for another book in the Tudor Romance series, The Queen's Lady Out Early 2011.
