Synopses & Reviews
A fabulous historical novel set in the court of King Henry VIII. Mary Boleyn attracts the attention of the young king and becomes his mistress; when he tires of her, she sets out to school her sister, Anne, as a replacement. A sumptuos and compelling story of love, betrayal and loss in the tradition of Rose Tremain and Tracy Chevalier. "Gregory has launched herself into a popular period and produced something with that most under-rated of virtues: readability" "The Times".
The Boleyn family is keen to rise through the ranks of society, and what better way to attract the attention of the most powerful in the land than to place a beautiful young woman at court? But then the course of English history is irrevocably changed.
