Eleanor Alice Burford was born in London. Her father, Joseph Burford, was a dock worker who passed on his great love of books to his daughter. She was an avid reader from the age of four onwards. In her early twenties, she married a leather merchant, George Percival Hibbert, about 20 years her senior, who also shared her love of books and reading. During World War II, the couple lived in Cornwall, which served as the setting for many of her works. She became one of the preeminent English authors of historical fiction for most of the 20th century. She used eight different pen names during her career and many of her readers never suspected her other identities. Her first romantic suspense novel, Mistress of Mellyn (1961), was published under the name Victoria Holt in order to keep her identity a secret as a publicity stunt – and a very effective one, as the book became an instant bestseller.

It’s been along time since I read a novel by Victoria Holt. This one wasn’t my favorite. The protagonist is Anna Brett and she has a challenging childhood and is basically raised by her spinster aunt who deals with antiques. Anna is somewhat naive and definitely alone. Her only friend turns out to be the other main character in the book, Chantel Loman, the nurse. Chantel is an interesting woman who seems to get whatever she wants. Luckily for Anna, Chantel likes her. The love interest for Anna is Redvers, a married man. Lots of details and descriptions of scenery etc. Anna becomes a bit tiresome and the book drags in places. Definitely a clean story with intrigue and forbidden romance.… (mais)

This wasn't her best story, but it was alright. The author takes a verrrrry sympathetic view of the king, which I just can't bring myself to consider. Henry's flirting with Katherine grossed me right out---him being old enough to be her father and quite bloated and unattractive. There was a lot of repetition in the narrative and dialogue ("troth-plighted"...ugh. So awkward and there are so many other synonyms for being engaged.) I must say though, she jumped right into the story and it grabbed my attention from the very beginning. This won't put me off Plaidy, by any means, but I just wasn't all that impressed with this story.… (mais)
