***Satisfies Hunger for Historical Fiction***

This was the first book by Philippa Gregory that I read, and it remains one of my favorites. I typically stick to heavy literary classics, but my fascination with some eras in British history left me hankering for some historical fiction. Reading Philippa Gregory's books really allow me to itch that scratch.

Also, I'm someone who finds difficulty making time for personal reading unless I am part of a book club, a Goodreads First Reads winner, or have some other external pressure to make time for an activity I would normally de-prioritize as pure pleasure. However, this novel quickly hooked me in so that I was completely immersed in the story for hours at a time. I was too absorbed to feel guilty for not doing something more "productive." That's a real gift.

If you're interested in historical fiction about women, this period, etc. this should prove to be a satisfying indulgence.
