Journal Entry 1 by wingAbi-Gibbywing from Millbrook, Cornwall United Kingdom on Friday, November 2, 2018
Picked up from a friend back in 2015 who was a world book night giver.

I really enjoyed this superbly written book, I liked how the author gave a more accurate telling of Henry 8ths final years instead of playing it all down like other authors do. I also felt like it had a powerful image on how easily you could fall from grace at a drop of a hat and how unpredictable the King was. This book also shows us how bad things really were for women no matter whom there family's where

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of.

**** Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option. ****

A surprise HGG package arrived today, with this in it! Many thanks, Abi-Gibby.

Historical novel from a period often chosen - but I agree with Abi Gibby: this one points out how vulnerable women were to their circumstances: it was easy to fall out of favour and live in fear. I read it for the 21 Ultimate reading and release challenge, and really enjoyed it.
