Alphabet Series: The Other Boleyn Girl

The Other Boleyn Girl (The Tudor Court #3)

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

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 realises 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 fate into her own hands.

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 glamourous court in Europe and survived by following her heart.”

I am a sucker for historical fiction.  I love it. And I LOVE the Tudors (I am slightly obsessed).  This book is excellent, and of course better than the movie. Actually, Philippa Gregory’s books about the Tudors are extremely well written so read all of them!

    This was an excellent book! I read it solely because I wanted to see the development of the relationship between Henry and Anne but I also found Mary’s life to add a twist to the history behind the Tudors. Gregory did a wonderful job with this novel. I’m tempted to read the White Queen and the books tied in with the War of the Roses, but there are so many of them and the betrayals & fighting in those books are brutal!
