Summary The King's Witch The King's Witch Summary ß 104 Tracy Borman ¿ 4 Summary In March of 1603 as she helps to nurse the dying ueen Elizabeth of England Frances Gorges dreams of her parents’ country estate where she has learned to use flowers and herbs to become a much loved healer She is happy to stay at home when King James of Scotland succeeds to the throne His court may be shockingly decadent but Tracy Borman is already an accomplished historian The challenge with her first novel was to prove that she can also be a good writer of fiction In my opinion she did a wonderful job on that accountFrances Gorges is a young noble women living in 1603 England She is allowed by her loving parents to grow as an independent woman and to cultivate her skills as a healer She was taught the wonders of herbs by the pastor of her hometown Longford and she used her talents to help the ones that were in need Her family was a favorite of ueen Elizabeth I and she aided the old ueen to die peacefully However when the new king James I VI comes to the throne he does not share the same warm feelings for the Gorges family and does not appreciate Frances skills You see the kind was obsessed with religion and witch hunting Back in those days a woman healer could easily be considered a witch under the right circumstances In order to be safe Frances retreats from the court to her family s castle but she is forced to come back by her uncle who secures her a spot as the 8 years old princess maid of honour From the moment she steps into the court she is closely supervised by The Lord Privy Seal a terrible man who wants to use her in order to secure his position with the king Life at court is not pleasant The king contrary to his religious fervor prefers hunting and young boys to the court responsibilities and the company of his Royal family He hates the Catholics and does not do anything to protect the He is obsessed with treason and thinks there are plots at every corner And he is right The novel is woven around the Gunpowder plot made by closet Catholics aiming to kill the Protestant king and crown his daughter as ueen and secure her support for their religion Among all the court intrigues and plotting there is also a beautiful love story between Frances and one of the traitors Thomas Wintour I enjoyed this novel uite a bit I did not know much about the time period or the Gunpowder plot and it gave me the perfect opportunity to learn I could see that the author knows history well but she did not exaggerate with the details in the detriment of the plot I believe the two were very well balanced and the pacing was appropriate Obviously as it is written around real events the suspense is not as exciting as a purely fictional account As I checked the details of the plot on Wikipedia I already knew how everything was going to unravel so there wasn t a lot of tension in the end I recommend the reader to check the facts after they finish the story to better enjoy the 2nd part of the novel The love story was tender and not overwhelming a nice addition to the plot All in all an enjoyable and informative historical fiction from an author I want to read of
