    Story
    "Clean biography of Mary Boleyn"

    I enjoyed this more than Allison Weir's version of Mary's life. It was clean and not wishy-washy, The author was clear about her stance on something and why she takes that position. Considering what is known about her, this book was the right length. The narration is not the best.

    Story
    "Great start but ending lacks Mary herself"
    Would you listen to Mary Boleyn again? Why?

    No I don't think I would listen to it again. There is little information on Mary Boleyn (compared to her sister Anne) and I feel that, after a good start, it moves on more to what the people around her were doing. It doesn't say much about what Mary was doing, mainly her sister Mary and her father Thomas.


    What other book might you compare Mary Boleyn to, and why?

    Well will have to be Mary Boleyn by Alison Weir. Both have different opinions but I liked this one's opinion on Catherine and Henry Carey being the King's children.


    What three words best describe Debra Burton’s voice?

    Struggling but calming and direct


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Anne Boleyn was executed.
