Publisher's Summary

Politics and passion are inextricably bound together in this compelling drama. The Boleyn family is keen to rise through the ranks of society, and what better way to attract the attention of the most powerful in the land than to place their most beautiful young woman at court? But Mary becomes the king's mistress at a time of change. He needs his personal pleasures, but he also needs an heir. The unthinkable happens and the course of English history is irrevocably changed.

For the women at the heart of the storm, they have only one weapon; and when it's no longer enough to be the mistress, Mary must groom her younger sister in the ways of the king. What happens next is common knowledge. But here it is told in a way we've never heard it before, with all of Philippa Gregory's characteristic perceptiveness, backed by meticulous research and superb storytelling skills.

ABRIDGED! Half the book is missing...

This was soooo disappointing. This is an abridged version and omits a number of really powerful scenes (I’ve read the hard copy enough times to know when something is missing!).
And the narrator has a horrid high voice that means that in order to vary it between characters, Anne has to be a high pitched idiotic sounding fluff head...the very opposite of the story’s message.
Waste of money.

Gutted

Incredibly interesting story - gutted by what happened! Of course I already knew what would happen (it’s a famous story!) but the details and the way in which is was told made it seem fresh and painful in a way I didn’t expect.

ABRIDGED!

Narration was not too bad but as I listened I realised the story has been severely cut short, not worth the download. Audible kindly refunded my credit upon request but I will not be ordering from Harperaudio again

My favourite book from Philippa Gregory

I have read a lot of Philippa Gregory's books now but this is a favourite. A compelling read with an excellent narrator
