Jean Plaidy is a master at creating the lives of English monarchs so that listeners are left feeling they were a part of those royal lives. WILLIAM’S WIFE tells the story of the life of Mary, daughter of James II and wife of William of Orange. Mary's happy childhood segues into her loveless marriage, in which the politics of the day demand that she support her husband even if it means going against her father. Diana Bishop reads in a clear, flowing voice. Mary is portrayed as naïve and girlish. Her attempts to reason through the dilemma she finds herself in are especially vivid.
