School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-10-While Lace describes ornate formal gardens, costly wardrobes, and other obsessions of the wealthy, Stewart focuses on the often gritty details of daily life in London. In Sources, selected excerpts from Elizabethan documents and first-person accounts capture the tone of the times. (c) Copyright 2010.
