One thought on “Ordeal by Ambition: An English family in the shadow of the Tudors

  1. Carolina Casas

    The Seymours has been given an unsympathetic eye for daring to step over the Boleyns, this view has permeated through centuries and William Seymour doesn't dispel this view by giving a different interpretation, but rather by laying out the facts and detailing the lives of the three most important members of this family: Jane, Edward and Thomas.

  2. Kelly

    One of the best historical books I have ever read. It helped that I was craving information on the Seymour family, particularly Edward Seymour and the author didn't disappoint. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves the Tudor period.

    This book--written by a descendant of the Seymour siblings--details the lives of Queen Jane Seymour and her brothers Edward (Protector of the Realm) and Thomas (Lord High Admiral).I've always been a bit stymied about the lack of non-fiction out there surrounding the Seymour family least in comparison to others who were close King Henry VIII.

  4. Adrienne Dillard

    Interesting read on the SeymoursIt is written by a descendant so you get an "insider" perspective on the family, but it comes with a biased view on some of the other players at Court. As usual, the author repeats the unfounded claims that Jane Boleyn schemed to take the Boleyn family downbut the book is quite dated, so he can be forgiven. Keep its age in mind when considering some of the opinions given.
