Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 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.

A rich and compelling tale 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 own heart.

Review:

"Rather than settling for a picturesque rendering of court life, Gregory conveys its claustrophobic, all-consuming nature with consummate skill." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"You want a real page-turner, but you don't want to tarnish your reputation for literary taste. The Other Boleyn Girl is your kind of...book." Newsday

Review:

"Gregory captures not only the dalliances of court but the panorama of political and religious clashes throughout Europe. She controls a complicated narrative and dozens of characters without faltering, in a novel sure to please...fans of historical fiction." Library Journal

Review:

"Absorbing tale of a Renaissance family determined to climb as high as they can, whatever the cost." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Gregory's first installment of her New York Times bestselling series is now the basis of a feature film from Sony Pictures, starring Eric Bana, Scarlett Johansson, and Natalie Portman, set for release on December 21. Two ferociously ambitious sisters, Mary and Anne Boleyn, are rivals for the bed and heart of King Henry VIII.

This book was incredible. I couldn't put it down. While being a history buff helps when reading this book, it isn't strictly necessary. In fact, the reader is getting a history lesson without knowing it. Ms. Gregory does an excellent job in her research and uses her imagination to fill in the gaps. I look forward to reading more from this author.
