My Lady Anne, Gordon Thurborn

"The real life of Lady Anne Clifford, 1590 - 1676, is a story of feminine victory in a man's world, the men including King James I & VI, Charles I, Oliver Cromwell and two husbands: the Earl of Dorset, gambler, waster and womanizer, and the Earl of Pembroke, gambler, waster, womanizer and the richest man in England." -quoted from the description on Goodreads.

I wanted to love this book, simply because I love reading everything I can get my hands on when it comes to the Tuder/Stuart era. But.... while there is a whole lot of interesting information in this book, it just didn't grab me. I would have liked to read more about Anne and less about the people around her...

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I feel like it took me forever to read this book, and it just wasn't for me....
