    One thought on “Eliza Rose”

    1. This is a historical novel written by the historian Lucy Worsley which charts the growing years of the young Eliza, and her cousin, Katherine Howard. Both arrive as ladies in waiting of Anne of Cleves in the court of Henry VIII. Eliza has a difficult relationship with Katherine and has to grow up quickly. There is plenty of scandal and intrigue with great descriptions of life in the Royal court. We all know what happened with Henry and Katherine! Lucy Worsley gives us knowledgeable insights and [...]

    2. If you haven't watched a Lucy Worsley documentary you should. Lucy is a great storyteller both in writing and in her great documentaries. The Tudors are such a fascinating Royal bloodline, with Henry The Eighth being the most talked about. I feel like Henry's first 3 wives Katherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, and Jane Seymour get most of the attention with good reason those marriages had the most influence on World History but all of his wives were fascinating women. Maid of the Kings Court focuses [...]

    3. This is the first children’s novel by historian, Lucy Worsley. I have enjoyed her adult, factual books, and was keen to try her first novel. Although this is described as for children, I personally enjoyed it very much but would suggest it is more YA than a children’s book. Some of the themes, although sympathetically written about, and not in any way graphic, are more suitable for approx 11+ in my opinion. Our heroine is young Elizabeth Camperdowne, who we first meet when she is twelve and [...]

    4. Well, this was a huge no.I'd expected a nice, neat little package of sweet historical fiction with a dash of innocent romance. What I got was well, not that.There was a fair bit of content, and though it didn't happen onscreen, exactly (and it did come on towards the end), it was definitely present. I would've marked this as DNF, but since it was almost over, I went ahead and finished it anyway. (I suppose the blame is partially on my part for expecting a decent story when King Henry VIII was li [...]

    5. Wouldn't recommend this book :/ I really hated the characters and the content in itI should have looked at some reviews before reading it

    6. This was well, disappointing. And more so when the author's final note on "Why I Wrote This Book" the goes and makes it all even worse.Allow me to go from the start: this story follows an invented girl, Elizabeth, whose wealthy noble family had fallen on hard times. She manages to somehow end up at court as a maiden with her cousin Katherine (#SpoilerNotReallySpoiler, the one who marries King "Gotta Catch 'em All" Henry). And then what happens? Well, obviously what everyone expects: Katherine la [...]

    7. “Maid of the King’s Court” is an excellent historical fiction novel about life in the court of King Henry VIII.While the story of Elizabeth is fictionalized, most of the facts of life at the time are as historically accurate as possible, owing to the fact that the author (Lucy Worsley) is a British historian who actually works at the castle featured in the book. I have always enjoyed reading about life in Tudor England, and this novel did not disappoint. It’s also surprisingly clean cons [...]

    8. Novels set in Henry VIII's court are like catnip to me. So as soon as I saw Maid of the King's Court took place during the rise and fall of Catherine Howard, I knew I had to read it.Did it live up to my expectations? Well, yes and no. It's a very readable book (I basically devoured it in one go) but it lacked the depth I would have hoped for.Lucy Worsley is a curator at Hampton Court Palace, so she knows this historical setting inside out. But while her details are spot on, Worsley takes a lot o [...]

    9. According to the Epilogue this books was partly written because a mean historian discounted a theory a friend of the author had about the layout of Hampton Court in the Tudor period and called Katherine Howard a silly girl. Apparently this book was supposed to be some kind of vindication for the teenage queen and show a different side to her, and show the legendary scene of Katherine running across Hampton Court begging Henry to forgive her that the mean historian said didn't happen.I'm not real [...]

    10. I was thrilled to get a copy of this - I love Lucy Worsley's historical TV programmes, and I could imagine that her storytelling ability and enthusiasm would transfer well to the written word.I would say though, that this is NOT for particularly young or immature readers - it does encompass storylines familiar to adults of Henry VIII's court and marriages - mistresses, beheading, court politics. The cover may look like Jacqueline Wilson, but I would say it's aimed at a Secondary School (age 12+) [...]

    11. Maid of the King's Court is a very well written book.It is the story of Elizabeth Rose Camperdowne (fictional character) during the time of King Henry the VIII. While this is a fictional story, many of the events happened in real life and the author, who is a historian, did an amazing job mixing fantasy with history.As a child who grew up in Europe, I've heard stories about the mad king who could not bear children and beheaded his wives (don't ask me why they tell children this story). What I di [...]

    12. -POTENTIAL SPOILERS- You know which reviews I hate writing the most? They're not positive reviews, nor negative reviews. They're not reviews for a super hyped-up book. No, those are often the most fun for me to write. The reviews that are the hardest for me to write are for books that I liked or disliked, yet can't expand on WHY I feel that way. Hence why I wrote so little reviews when I first joined this site, because many books I read made me feel that way. And I can't really talk about a book [...]

    13. I absolutely devoured this book, a delicious historical novel set in Tudor England, with a fabulously sharp and spiky narrator who is the cousin (and rival) of Henry VIII's ill-fated wife Katherine Howard. I'm not sure exactly which genre to class it in, as it breaks some of the "rules" of children's literature - it looks from the cover like an MG novel, and starts with Eliza at 12, but by the end of the book she's 20 and has been dealing for years with the questions of how to operate in a licen [...]

    14. This was oddly refreshing. It is presented as a children's or Young adult historical fiction novel and told from the perspective of a 12 year old girl, who dreams of the finery that Court has to offer.Eliza Rose goes to live with her cousin after a family disgrace, and who is the cousin but Katherine Howard? I found this such a surprise, but a good one of course! And I was definitely caught off guard by how sly young Katherine is. Eliza was such a cute character, I sympathised with her all the w [...]

    15. In this novel Katherine Howard's story is re-spun. I no longer see her as a silly little girl that she has been portrayed as for hundreds of years. I see her as a girl who was possibly a victim of her time. History is a series of stories that always have another side to them.I loved the concept of the novel and the insight it brings into the Tudor court. Eliza Rose is a novel for younger people and helps them to access the history in a more understandable and interesting way. I also loved the il [...]

    16. I enjoyed this book, Eliza is an engaging narrator and I was halfway through the book before I even realised. The chapters are quite short and story follows Eliza from when she is twelve to when she is eighteen.Much Eliza Rose is about Eliza’s life when she meets Katherine and what happens at the King’s Court; personally I found the beginning of the book more interesting. At twelve Eliza is an adult, ready to be engaged and aware of her responsibility, yet she also clings to her doll and has [...]

    17. I really enjoyed this book.I loved how well it did the history and how it makes it a read I can give to my students without being worried they'll come away with loads of ridiculous misconceptions about the time period.I really enjoyed the take the story had on a young Katherine Howard and her motivations that led her to become the person we remember from History. Much like Harriet Castor's VIII I love that this book makes her real.I also really enjoyed the story. It was fast paced and interestin [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this story. This book follows Eliza who is Katherine Howard's cousin. We get to see Eliza's journey through the Tudor court. Eliza is brought up to do her duty she needs to find a husband in order to support her family. She is sent to spend time with her cousin so that she can be educated in how to behave at court. We get to see Eliza be a maid to Anne of Cleves and has that marriage breaks down we see the rise of Katherine Howard. I think this book created a really realistic im [...]

    19. I really enjoyed this book. I've always been interested in the Tudor time period with King Henry VIII and I really enjoyed how this novel played off the time period. It was very interesting and I couldn't put it down!

    20. I so wanted this book to be better than it was! Lucy Worsley’s non-fiction is excellent and I wanted her YA foray to be just as good. I found the main character, Eliza, quite annoying as she swung back and forth between condemning the corruption in King Henry’s court and choosing to join in revelry.

    21. I know of Lucy Worsley from the BBC documentaries. Her speech is lovely, and I especially love the work she does with Mark Hill – they’re like a zany version of the Lutece from BioShock in a way.But onto the book. Set in Tudor court (Henry VIII’s time), we meet Eliza Rose (fictional, not from history) when she is quite young. Quite spoiled and selfish, she thinks mostly of herself as she’s part of a noble family, so has always had an easy life and never had to lift a finger for it. Howev [...]

    22. MAID OF THE KING’S COURT by Lucy Worsley is a YA historical fiction novel set in England during the reign of King Henry the Eighth. The book follows Elizabeth Camperdowne, who must find a suitable man to marry in order to provide her family with wealth and stability. As circumstances unfold and she has the opportunity to become the King’s mistress, everyone urges her to take action quickly. However, Eliza has her own hesitations, aware that most of the King’s past lovers are now beheaded. [...]

    23. If you were to ask me what one of my favourite periods of history is, I’d probably say The Tudors; specifically, the reign of Henry VIII. There’s something about his reign that just fascinates - which was why Eliza Rose was right up my alley.Eliza Rose follows the journey of Eliza, a young girl on the cusp of womanhood, as she navigates the politics of court life in Tudor times. One of the fantastic things about this novel is that the narrative is that it’s full of history that makes sense [...]

    24. I am a sucker for historical fiction, so when I saw that Maid of the King’s Court focused on the Tudor period of British history I was instantly reading to read it. There are some great things going on here, but unfortunately, this one fell a little bit flat for me. First, the good. I love that Lucy Worsley actually works in London as Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces, and that she got the idea for this book from rumors that Katherine Howard still haunts the Hampton Court palace, racing [...]

    25. I received an eARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Review originally posted on my blog, Turning Pages.I stumbled upon this book on NetGalley, and it sounded so fascinating. King Henry! Katherine Howard! Drama! Romance! Danger! However, it became clear to me early on that the book attempts to cover too long a period of time, and therefore readers are kept distant from the story being told.I struggle to even write this review, because the truth is I read it in one [...]

    26. 3.5 StarsYou can tell that was a very well researched novel which is super important to me when reading Historical Fiction. As a historian and lover of Tudor Era England this was a delight! I could really connect with the romance as it doesn't really develop until the very end of the novel and it just felt like a lazy plot device to end the novel BUT everything else about this story was great!

    27. I received this as an ARC from NetGalley.First Line: I'd always known that my adult life would begin once I was twelve.Summary: Eliza is the only daughter of a poor noble family. She has been raised to marry well and be a dutiful daughter. When her betrothal falls thru she is sent to live with relatives at Trumpton Hall where she is to learn how to be a lady. She meets young Katherine Howard and they both are sent to the court of Henry VIII to be maids of honor to the new queen, Anne of Cleves. [...]

    28. a easy read . Lucy Worsley has written a lovely Tudor novel covering the time in the court of Henry VIII'S . It was easy to use my eyes and imagine it all happening. I love anything Tudor , it's always been my favourite period in history of our kings and queens of England. I feel Lucy has tapped into her knowledge wonderfully to create the charming novel and I will keen to read any more of her books if she writes them.

    29. This book is so well-written. I was irked everytime the narration showed any mysogynistic treatments towards women in 1600s. But this proved how accurate the historical events were written. How to portrayed the old king of England and his jolly companions. I recommend this book to be read by all feminist, to see how far we've come. Yeah it's still a long journey for women to be empowered as we all imagine, but we should be glad by living in this time and era.
