    "Historical Listening Pleasure!"

    All I remembered about any Boleyn was that Anne had her head chopped off by the king. Who knew how much more there could be to it?

    This is a great tale of a different era - when women were breeders and playing in the royal world was both desired and dangerous.

    Every once in awhile, I listen to a book and think "Gee, this is probably better heard than read" (a BIG confession for someone who prefers reading to just listening when I have the chance). Because of the accents and time period - this is one of those tales. I was swooped into another world as I drove along in mine.

    I love books on personal development and entrepreneurship. For entertainment, I prefer the military sci-fi genre.
