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
Read from December 13 to 22, 2012
Audiobook read by Susan Lyons. So much better than either of the film adaptations. Written from Mary Boleyn's POV, the book takes a very unflattering stand on Anne Boleyn and incorporates many of the legends that have been proven false. But because it focuses on Mary instead of Anne, it's still a great story.
It was really easy for me to listen to this book. I have an hour commute to and from work, so I listen to audiobooks for entertainment and this book had me looking forward to it!
I loved that I had to keep reminding myself that this book is fiction because the author does such a good job.
I thought she did a great job so I can't say that I have a favorite.
Mary Boleyn. ..she was misunderstood....but very loyal to het family...
I look for books that she narrate...she brings you in to the book
Anne had to let go of her true love Henry Percy it was just awful The pain she demonstrate is heart wrenching.
I highly recommend this book it was absolutely wonderful and the narration was just outstanding
The reader is Australian and her accent grates with very word she utters: exaggerated 'posh' English, attempting and failing to disguise the oz. can't go on listening: if you know what a British accent sounds like, avoid this reader (unless she's reading an Aussie or nz book)
