This is the second Tudor book I've read, told from the point of veiw of Mary Boleyn. The other being 'The Other Boleyn Girl'. The story differs slightly between the two making me think it's about time I actually read a factual book about her. Both times I've read as Mary, I've not liked Anne so much. This book told more about her time in France and being the French Kings mistress which was interesting. Thomas Boleyn is always made out as a nasty man in these books who does care about his kids unless they help him to power. I actually read somewhere that he was deeply ashamed of Mary when she started sleeping with Kings and was very worried when Anne started playing around with Henry. Regardless of how true the history is, this book would be an enjoyable read for anyone interested in the Tudors.

This is indeed a good looking book and it looks like it definately is the kind of book I could enjoy. (Although I don't know that much about the Tudors.) Thank you so much for this book, redfox! Huugs and kisses from Belgium!

I have enjoyed this book quite a lot. I sped through it, it read easily and was more then interesting enough. I learned a great deal about Tudor England, a period that is starting to interest me more and more after reading this book (in addition to Sansoms 'Sovereign'). Sometimes the romantic part of the novel was a little too prominent, but it didn't bother me much.
Thanks for letting me enoy this book, redfox! ;)

On its way to the winner of the November sweepstake. I saw lots of books on your bookshelf and wishlist having to do with Tudor England and The Boleyns even, so I thought this might be a book you would enjoy. (I know I did.) I hope you'll like it!
