I knew this would not be a happy book. We already know the ending because it's history. But this story was so long and so sad that I took a break from it for several days. I just couldn't go back to that world for about a week. I also got tired of the court life Mary Boleyn describes. I'm sure it's accurate but I got bored of hearing about parties, masquerades and the court progress.
The reader is great though so if you think you'd like the book, I can say that the reader is engaging and her voice is pleasant.
This is a fabulous book and reading performance. I couldn't stop listening.
The story is fascinating.
I love this book. I have read and re-read it and now listened to it. One of the few books I can read over and over again.
The lucky sister mary Bolelyn was pushed by her family to be a favorite to King Henry but after he lost interest in her and moved on the scheming family promoted. Ann to the court.She was more scheming and wanted more than just to be a bedmate to the King she was playing the long game and she held out for many years.Bringing the Catholic Church to an end and The King discarding his first wife Katherine of Aragon,Ann was only queenfor over three years and then the king became tired of herbed aisle she could not conceive and have a life born male.
This book is mostly about this time period and her relationship with her sister Mary.
Mary Boleyn she was taken advantage of by the Boleyns and her uncle Howard.She did have ably which poor Ann was never able to have .Ann even took custody of her son and if she had lived he would have challenge for the crown.
I have not heard her before she is very good
George Bolelyn and find out the truth about him.He sounded pretty wild and kind .
I really have enjoyed this series I understand that not everything is 100 percent factually correct but that's why we read to fill in those details
