Redheaded Princess

Redheaded Princess by Ann Rinaldi
For all her royal blood, Elizabeth's life is fraught with danger and uncertainty. Sometimes she is welcome in the royal court; other times she is cast out into the countryside. With her position constantly changing, the Princess must navigate a sea of shifting loyalties and dangerous affections. At stake is her life - for beheading is not uncommon among the factions that war for the crown.

I enjoyed this book.
It was interesting to read about what her life may have been like as a young girl growing up a princess and heir to the throne of England.

The story incorporated historical figures and background information, but I felt that character development was lacking. I wasn't riveted, but then again, I knew how the story was going to end.
I give it it **.

A great story of Elizabeth as a young girl. I thought it was well written and really got me into the characters of the time.
It made me want to read more about her and her life. I give it 4****
