Tracy Borman’s “Elizabeth’s Women”

I’m currently reading Tracy Borman’s “Elizabeth’s Women,” chronicling Queen Elizabeth I and the women around her throughout her life. Great stuff. Yes, the endless references to poor, oppressed women not properly recognized for the abilities gets old but it’s a small price to pay.

I have an error correction – on page 139, she means Margaret of Anjou was Henry VI’s wife not Henry IV’s wife.

And I have a suggestion, note Kat Champernowne/Astley’s marriage earlier. The name Astley suddenly appears on page 92 while the noting of the marriage comes much later. It could be easily handled with a quick parenthetical without having to move the details from where they are now.
