Review from Clare Longrigg, Deputy Editor, Psychologies Magazine UK
“My daughter and I both loved reading Matilda’s Secret – it’s a great page-turner, a gripping read, as Mattie and her cousin Katherine get sucked into the dirty, dangerous world of court politics. I learned a lot about Henry’s wives, my daughter aged 9 learned about Tudor lifestyles, and the dramatic difference between rich and poor... There was wonderful colour and historical detail that inspired us to visit Hampton Court and re-imagine the places where secret trysts and dances took place. Mattie’s slow realisation of the destruction of the monasteries and devastation of local communities under Henry’s reign was very well described without reading like a history lesson.”
