Readable, entertaining, well-illustrated overview of the roles open to women in Tudor England. Contains a few obvious factual errors and I wouldn't recommend it as a sole or introductory book on the subject. ( )

More enlightening History and more clever ladies taking the initiative and walking the talk despite the fact the whole way Society was strutured was against them.
the ones's to be sorry for are those at the lowest rungs of Society who suffered the most poverty, landless mobile peasants (for work) and single independent or widowed women.
A worthwhile book. ( )
