She's not only overboard with her books I recall she made a comment in her forward on Seton's Devil Water that more than hinted there was an incestual relationship with the father/daughter -- which I did not get from reading the book at all. Here's a comment a reviewer on Amazon added as a comment to her original review,What's up with this woman's obsession with incest? I find that very unsettling and it makes me stay away from any more of her novels!
Eeewwww. Lord knows what she'll do with Edward, Richard and Elizabeth Woodville.Neerja Tripathi says:
Just adding to my review -What is up with page 310 and 311 ? Mary is having mildly erotic dreams and thoughts about her dead Father-In Law , King Henri II ??
Ugh !! Very Harold Robbins , I should say.
You'd think she'd be a little humbler, especially the way the reviews are coming in right now. They're not exactly what I'd call glowing her puffed up sense of self importance is a major turn off to me as well.Maybe its just me but Ms. Gregory sure does like to pat herself on the back and toot her own horn. I've read a few interviews where her ego seems bigger than the room. I'm starting to get displeased and she is quickly turning me off to her work.
I can't recall reading it's ever been proven one way or the other and I've always had a hard time believing someone so devoutly religious would swear on any relic put to her that she and Arthur had not consumated the marriage. Even back when I was enjoying PG's books, I refused to read this one for that very reason.My understanding is that this was very much in dispute, then and now.
