I have been on a tear of 17th-18th century European history this summer, with a fictional kick-off from Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle. Wanting to dig a little deeper into the Continental goings-on surrounding Elizabeth Stuart, this audiobook became my constant driving and dog-walking companion for July. If you were ever under the staggering misapprehension that women were not serious political movers in the 1600s and 1700s, this book will fix you right up.
