  • The Last Wife of Henry VIII

    From the luxuries of court to the last gory years of the outsize King Henry, when heads rolled and England trembled, Catherine bestrode her destiny and survived to marry her true love. She was the least known of Henry VIII's six wives, but the cleverest of them all.

    Heidi says: "Fun historical fiction"
    "Loved the book - didn't love to listen"
    Overall

    Loved the book - the detail, the story. A bit slow in the beginning - but worth the listen - BUT I found that I had to work really hard to NOT focus on the narrator's irritating way of speaking. I will go out of my way to avoid any audiobooks done by her again. Almost ruined it for me.

  • The Boleyn Inheritance

    The Boleyn Inheritance is a novel drawn tight as a lute string about a court ruled by the gallows and three women whose positions brought them wealth, admiration, and power - as well as deceit, betrayal, and terror. Once again, Philippa Gregory has brought a vanished world to life: the whisper of a silk skirt on a stone stair, the yellow glow of candlelight illuminating a hastily written note, the murmurs of the crowd gathering on Tower Green below the newly built scaffold.

    "The BEST yet!"
    Overall

    What great choices for narration! Three different voices from three different points of view: Hurrah for Ruthie Henshall - the voice of the young exuberant Katherine. The story swept you up, kept you in, and didn't let go until the last tear was shed!
