...is a fascinating interpretation of the turbulent relationship between King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn narrated by her sister Mary. This novel is loosely based on actual events that transpired during Henry's turbulent reign. The Boleyn's are an ambitious family and will do anything to earn the king's favor even if it means pawning their youngest, already wed daughter, Mary right into the bed of the married King. The king father's two of Mary's children and eventually marries older sister Anne and makes her his Queen! Talk about AMBITION! This book was definitely an excellent read. I've always been fascinated by King Henry's reign and thoroughly enjoyed Gregory's interpretation. If you are looking for historically based facts about the Anne/Henry marriage then this book is not for you. This book is fictitiously based and should be read and appreciated as such. I must admit that I've always been fascinated by the Boleyn's, particularly the rise and fall of Anne. Her ambition is breathtaking, frightening and intriguing. I've read so many negative reviews about this book by people who don't understand that fiction is fiction and history is history and it is quite alright to take a story and add twists and turns and make it your own. Philippa has mastered the art of interpretation. The Other Boleyn Girl is the first book that I've read by Philippa and I plan to read more.
♥♥♥♥♥ - Wonderful!!
