    I received this book in Kindle format and found it hard to read It was dense and the chapters did not break nicely The story of Katherine Manners, Duchess of Buckingham explores politics of 1600s England, including the Plague, the Irish Uprising, and the rules of both James and Charles I.I am unclear if this is a biography or a historical fiction novel however As others have noted there are no footnotes or information on the sources that the information came from.

    Thanks go to Goodreads for randomly picking me as the winner of an ecopy of this book.A very good book I love biographies but as the previous reviewer wrote, this readlike historical fiction There are no references citing whatsoever Nonetheless, the book kept me entertained and enthralled which is why I gave it 4 stars I knew absolutely nothing about the Duchess prior to the book.
