The Other Boleyn Girl

eBooks of the Month Historical Fiction

LoveReading View on The Other Boleyn Girl

This is an absolutely cracking read, gripping from the very start.  Gregory creates an intriguing story that's historically true and she mixes fact with fiction seemlessly that you find the whole story completely believable.  Anne Boleyn's sister led an extraordinary life at the heart of one of the most exciting and glamorous courts in Europe and yet until I read this book had never in fact heard of her.  A very impressive historical family drama full of love and betrayal that is also a romping good read.

The Other Boleyn Girl Synopsis

Dazzled by the golden prince, Mary's joy is cut short when she discovers she is a pawn in the dynastic plots of her family. When the capricious king's interest wanes, Mary is ordered to pass on her knowledge of how to please him to her friend and rival: her sister, Anne.

 

Anne soon becomes irresistible to Henry, and Mary can do nothing but watch her sister's rise. Anne stops at nothing to achieve her own ambition. From now on, Mary will be no more than the other Boleyn girl. But beyond the court is a man who dares to challenge the power of her family to offer Mary a life of freedom and passion. If only she has the courage to break away – before the Boleyn enemies turn on the Boleyn girls…
