Janel’s #CBR4 Review 56 The Forever Queen by Helen Hollick
This book was the first historical fiction book I have read in a while. This book interested me because it covered a period of English history I wasn’t familiar with. I liked Emma and was impressed with her strength and courage to manipulate and maneuver when needed.
I did get tired of the book halfway through because each chapter just brought the same people constantly switching sides and loyalties. I appreciated Hollick’s author note which explained what was fiction versus history.
I feel my patience with longer historical fiction books is waning. I had a similar tired feeling when reading Queen By Right.
