The Lisle Letters: An Abridgement Reviews
Extraordinary history. This book is the story of Tudor England as told by the people who lived it, through their letters, diaries and other intimate records. And what a story it is, surprising in that the religious controversies and marriage problems of Henry VIII that are the fodder of 21st century soap operas take a distinct back seat to the fear, terror and distrust that arose amongst the population as the rule of Henry VIII became more and more arbitrary and capricious.
Informative, was mostly interested in chapter 19, The Botolf Conspiracy, for research. The letters, naturally, ranged from mundane daily thoughts to the dangers of being under the rule of Henry VIII, who had become a self-serving tyrant.
