Together, Craft's three books give us probably the most thorough and multidimensional picture of Elizabeth Bathory that we shall ever have. INFAMOUS LADY ably depicts the historical record of events; Bathory's LETTERS sheds insight into the perilous times Bathory faced and how such stress must have affected her; this MEMOIRE presents a plausible "between the lines" reading from the perspective of a trusted servant.
That's the whole picture -- as well as anyone can assemble it.
It was wonderful to read Prof. Craft's personal thoughts and views on the Countess and her own ideas on what went on behind closed doors. I could not have asked for a better fictional book on the subject - reading this novel was, simply put, a guilty pleasure.
From beginning to end, it only took me under three hours to read this as it was just too delicious to put down. Extremely entertaining, at times horrifying, Prof. Craft captured the essence of the Countess to a T.
Thank you Kim, for writing yet another fantastic novel about our beloved Countess. All three novels are now displayed proudly on my bookshelf, with the hopes of more Countess novels to eventually join them.
