White King – Charles I by Leanda de Lisle reviewed on Shiny New Books today!

Another review on Shiny New Books today! This is a non-fiction book, but as I explain in my review, it reads more like a novel. Was King Charles more sinned against than sinning? Was he misguided? What about his wife, Henrietta Maria? Lots of questions and many answers in this book. Like her earlier book,  “The Tudors” this is an immensely readable book which I have greatly enjoyed reading.

  1. Nice to have people joining me and Harriet in doing the non-fiction. I have a book on Henry II to read for next month – not a king I know anything about (now). I wonder if the author is one of the Penshurst De Lisles – a quick Google didn’t tell me.
