Dazzled by the king, 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.… (mer)

    Innocent Traitor: A Novel of Lady Jane Grey av Alison Weir (shamicnic, al.vick)
    shamicnic: This historical fiction book preceeds "Innocent Traitor" by telling the story of Anne Boleyn from the intriguing point of view of her sister, Mary Boleyn.

    The Twentieth Wife av Indu Sundaresan (legxleg)
    legxleg: Although The Twentieth Wife is set in Mughal India, not Tudor England, I think Sundaresan and Gregory write similar romance-infused history about a royal court populated by ambitious courtiers, including some scheming women.

    The Borgia Bride av Jeanne Kalogridis (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: The Borgia Bride takes a look at another controversial historical figure - Lucrezia Borgia through the eyes of her sister-in-law. There is plenty of scandal, drama, and ambition.

    The Rise and Fall of Anne Boleyn: Family Politics at the Court of Henry VIII av Retha M. Warnicke (meggyweg)

    Portrait of an Unknown Woman av Vanora Bennett (PatMock)

    The Concubine av Norah Lofts (carport)
    carport: I enjoyed this characterization of Anne Boleyn very much. Written in the 1950s, the book contains some inaccuracies, but is an excellent portrait of Henry VIII's notorious wife.

It was an enjoyable read but could have been better had the historical facts been accurate. ( )

I enjoyed this way more than The Queen's Fool, the only other Philippa Gregory I've read. Mary Boleyn felt like a fully fleshed character in a way that the other book's narrator never did. I still wasn't impressed though; I feel like there are plenty of other treatments of the era and people that are better done however.

I suspect I will not be picking up any more of Ms. Gregory's book; there are too many awesome authors in the world for me to not be picky. ( )

O! the melodrama. It isn't so much a book to read as one to wallow in (like mud - dirty but fun). Amidst the gleeful muck, though, I found the characters interesting and strongly drawn, and the general thrust (ahem) of the plot quite engaging. Perhaps heavy-handed, definitely soap-opera-ish, but it certainly fit the holiday-reading entertainment value. ( )

How on Earth is this so popular? The writing is just plain bad, it reminds me of what I hear those Twilight books are like. Clunky, childish, no nuance just awful. The only reason I am moved to write a review is because never before have I been so utterly baffled by a books popularity. True I gave up half way through (I can't remember the last time I did that) but the half I did make it through was read with a permanent expression of utter confusion. ( )

A fascinating book that illustrates what existed between the two sisters. I read the book in a few days because it is written amazingly and fascinatingly.

The book, at the same time fascinating, is also shocking in the sense that it describes with great colorfulness the extremely hedonistic way of life in the royal court. The brutal competition for King Henry's attention is heartbreakingly unified by any means to expel his wives and turn them into objects of his sexual desires - A male son to his kingdom. Women at the time were tools for achieving one purpose or another without any guarantee of their safety. The birth of a daughter was considered a disaster, a mistake that could be corrected in subsequent deliveries. The writer describes in great detail the nuances of the high atmosphere, gossip, and intrigue, constant fear of rumors, jealousy, quarrels and competition for senior status, property, assets, and benefits. Concepts such as Satan and magic were part of the character of the period. I followed Anne's image and watched her cruel fate as I had foreseen the outcome of Queen Catherine before her, who had unjustly deported on various pretexts. How terrible it was to live in sixteenth-century England if you could not be linked to the kingdom in one way or another. The ordinary citizen lived in poverty while those who lived in the royal court enjoyed an incredible abundance. ( )
