    This is a duel timeline story that's told from 16th century Tudor times and the present day It centres around the mysterious death of Amy Robsart Amy was married to Robert Dudley Earl of Leicester Dudley Lester and Amelia Robsart are set to divorce But she's found dead at the bottom of the stairs The same way Amy had been found centuries ago This story has a duel timeline that blend Historical and modern day stories It revolves around the mysterious death of Amy Robsart The past is told from Amy's perspective whilst the present is told by Lizzie Kingdom I did find the story hard to get into at first as the pace is uite slow and confusing But once I got into it I really enjoyed it There is uite a lot of characters to try and remember This is an interesting and thought provoking read I would like to thank NetGalley H and the author Nicola Cornick for my ARC in exchange for an honest review

    There’s nothing I like better than a good dual timeline mystery and Nicola is one of my favourite authors for this genreIn The Forgotten Sister the author has taken a real historical mystery and made an intriguing story out if it I really enjoyed learning about Amy Robsart and her horrible callous husband Robert Dudley particularly as I think there was to Amy than history has given her credit for The characters really seem to come to life with real character traits that they were known to have being included into the story The fact that the modern characters seemed like the historical characters reincarnated was well done and made the story very interestingThe amount of historical details in this book was brilliant and I enjoyed learning about Elizabethan England Amy and Robert were two characters that I hadn’t heard of before so it was especially interesting learning about their lives and the legacy they left behind As always it was the little everyday details which made the book for me as I always find it fascinating to see how different life was back then compared to now I spent a few hours looking up Amy and Robert on the internet and learning about her mysterious deathI was engrossed in this story from the start and found the book very hard to put down It isn’t immediately clear what the links between the two timelines are and I enjoyed trying to work out how they were connected The supernatural element of the story was a nice touch and helped add an unusual element to the story as it was done in a very believable wayHuge thanks to H for inviting me onto the blog tour and for my copy of this book via Netgalley

    I would like to thank Sian Baldwin at H for asking me to be apart of the blog tour for The Forgotten Sister As soon as I read the blurb for this book I knew I had to read it I love a story that features the Tudors and like Nicola Cornick whose Grandma had books on the Tudors I love nothing than watching the amazing TV series or reading historical books and wishing I could be apart of that eraThe Forgotten Sister is set in the present day and in 1560 In 1560 we follow Amy Robsart who is married to Robert Dudley who is ueen Elizabeth favourite and he is besotted with her Amy wants freedom and a life of her own and decided to escapemoving forward in time in the present day we meet Lizzie Kingdom who is a celebrity has to escape the public eye due to scandal on meeting the Robsart family a completely unexpected journey takes place I was completely hooked from the first page and I was excited by the fact that I did not know where this story was going to go I loved Lizzie and her complex history and I adored Amy the links between the past and present day were so cleverly written The Tudor era sounded so real and as believable as present day London Nicola Cornick has just become one of my favourite authors and I am excited to read books by her

    Elizabeth I Robert Dudley Tudor England with a modern twist and a curse What’s not to love I ask you? Not One Darn Thing That’s what Thanks to NC for breaking my ho hum book slump You are a treasure Ms Cornick A real treasure Write faster NOTE The romance element for the modern counterparts of this dual timeline is drawn with a light subtle hand Just my style actually but may not suit others I know

    The Forgotten Sister by Nicola Cornick is a marvellous time slip novel that has its roots in fact The story has two time periods – 1550’s and present day Actual historical figures are within the tale including Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley They were both familiar to me as a historianThe novel is an exciting read as both stories run parallel causing the reader to read with heart racing As the action flows we are powerless to prevent the conclusionI loved the characters They were well drawn and realistic The leading ladies were very likable and easy to empathise with A couple of characters elicited feelings of dislike as my emotions were guided by the pen of Nicola CornickI was familiar with many of the locations It gave me a thrill to read of Hales Owen in Worcestershire as we actually go to Lifecentral a church in HalesowenI always love Nicola Cornick’s novels They thrill entertain and educate me I can never put them down except to sleepThe Forgotten Sister is a fabulous read that I can highly recommendI received this book for free A favourable review was not reuired and all views expressed are my own

    Book The Forgotten SisterAuthor Nicola Cornick Rating 2 Out of 5 StarsI would like to thank the publisher Graydon House for providing me with an ARC This one is a rather difficult one for me to rate On the one hand I had a great time reading this On the other I really didn’t I think a lot of it had to do with the pacing I found the first half of the book to be very boring Nothing really happened until at least the halfway point and it was really annoying to have to wait that long to actually be hooked If you are going to try to hook your readers you need to have something to hook your readers and make them want to keep reading I just didn’t get that here I felt like the author was trying to hook us with the murders but it wasn’t enough The murder hook didn’t work for a couple of reasons The first reason was that it happened so early in the book that we didn’t really have a chance to feel a connection to the characters This is supposed to be a love triangle Yes it is told in two times and two points of views Yes I am fully away that it does follow history However had I not known the backstory I don’t think I would had been able to grasp what was actually going on I think that had the murders happened a little bit later in the story giving us a time to actually bond and feel something for the characters then the events would have had a much greater impact I just felt like it was missing that punch that we needed I think a lot of it comes back to the writing as well I did feel something but again with all of the gossip and whatnot it felt like it was missing something I know some people have said that and I agree I think it would have met had we also had the men’s point of view They are the ones dealing with backlash and suffering I’m not saying that the women didn’t have it but their point of view just seemed shallow Had we gotten the men’s point of view I think the point would have been driven home a lot and a lot harder I really did like the characters and getting to see the dual histories I think that this was done pretty well I liked that in both the now and then that we got to see the backlash of the actions and see just how the females wanted to be the males and how the males were keeping them away I liked this and getting to see the women struggle with it was amazing Again had we gotten some of the men’s point of view I think it would have driven the point home even I really did kind of struggle with rating this one I went back and forth between a two and three star rating I did decide to settle on a two star because there really a lot of things that just didn’t work for me This book comes out on November 10 2020
