Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beginners in the Historical Fiction Genre Jean Plaidy is the pen name of this author and is used almost exclusively for Tudor historical novels. The Thistle and the Rose is a book with the new comer to historical fiction in mind. Margaret Tudor-Stuart is the reason the Scottish Kings became Kings of England. Historical details are accurate (as always) but Plaidy's writing is uninspiring. For those just getting their feet wet with Tudor England and wanting to flesh out their grade 12 History, this is a good read. For those of us who have been reading about history for decades, it is a disappointing, pedantic book. If you are a serious history buff, feel free to move on.
