Subject: Historical Novel Society Tudor novels
On another list I've been asked to recommend novels set in the Tudor
period for use with students aged 16-18 (6th form).
Can any of you experts help? I would guess that historical accuracy
and literary merit are both desirable. So far the following have been
C.J. Sansom : Dissolution; Dark Fire; Sovereign; and Revelation.
Phillipa Gregory: The Other Boleyn Girl
The constant princess
The Queen's fool
Mavis Cheek Amenable women
Alison Weir: Innocent traitor
JL Carrell The Shakespeare Secret
An Unchaste Life: Memoir of a Tudor Queen by Anne Cato
Vengeance Is Mine: A Novel of Anne Boleyn, Katherine Howard, and Lady
Rochford--the Woman Who Helped Destroy Them Both. by Brandy Purdy
The Relic Murders (Tudor Whodunnits Featuring Roger Shallot) by Paul
The Grail Murders (Tudor Mysteries 3) by Michael Clynes
and one somewhat off the wall suggesting that Queen Elizabeth was
actually a man pretending to be Elizabeth: The Bisley Boy by Chris Hunt
Margaret Irwin's books
Any comments (either for or against) and other suggestions most welcome.
