Mary Boleyn, ‘the infamous other Boleyn girl’, began her court career as the mistress of the king of France. François I of France would later call her ‘The Great Prostitute’ and the slur stuck. Mary would emerge the sole survivor of a family torn apart by lust and ambition, and it is in Mary and her progeny that the Boleyn legacy rests.

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.
"Great start but ending lacks Mary herself"
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.
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.
Struggling but calming and direct
When Anne Boleyn was executed.
