Let me preface this by saying that I am not a historical fiction
reader....at all. However, when I read this book (pre movie) I was
captivated. I knew next to nothing about the notorious Henry VIII prior
to reading The Other Boleyn Girl, besides the fact that he clearly had
issues keeping a wife. Along with a brief history lesson, the book is
written in a way that makes the reader feel like they are actually in
the scenes perhaps as a member of the court, or an ear for either Boleyn
girl to vent to. Thanks to this book, I am now intrigued by the Tudor
era. Be warned, this is one book you can't put down!

Description


Two sisters competing for the greatest prize: the love of a king.

A rich and compelling novel of love, sex, ambition, and intrigue, The Other Boleyn Girl introduces a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the heart of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe and survived by following her heart. When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of fourteen, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family's ambitious plots as the king's interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. Then Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king and take her fate into her own hands.
