    Innocent Traitor por 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.

  5. 20
    The Twentieth Wife por 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.

    Mary Boleyn: The True Story of Henry VIII's Mistress por Josephine Wilkinson (meggyweg)
  7. 20
    The Borgia Bride por 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 por Retha M. Warnicke (meggyweg)

    Portrait of an Unknown Woman por Vanora Bennett (PatMock)

    The Concubine por 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.

While not the first Philippa Gregory novel I read (I had previously devoured her "Wideacre" series), this is the one that started my mini obsession with the Tudors and Plantagenets. Gregory is a historical researcher par excellence, yet also a magician with crafting easy-to-follow, historical stories that don't get bogged down in archaic language or situations. Thanks to Ms. Gregory, I am now something of an amateur expert (is there such a thing?! - ha ha) on Henry VIII, his wives, family, and court.

Mary Boleyn, the lesser-known sister of Anne Boleyn (Henry VIII's future second-wife), is our heroine in this tale. She's a likeable, golden girl who catches the king's eye, and, typical of the day, uses her relationship with the royal personage to her own advantage, and to that of her family. Yet, enter her younger sister, Anne, who has been raised at the saucy and lax French court, and you the recipe for my favorite quote from the book, which is something like, "We're sisters. Born to be rivals."

If I had one complaint, it would be that Gregory's modern-day taken on women and their role in the world does sometimes drive the narrative and characters' actions. That said, the quality of her work and research is of the upmost integrity and she strives with ardor to remain true to actual events.

This is the first of Gregory's novels on the Tudor court; chronologically it becomes #9 in the stream of later books published. I highly recommend reading them in the order they were written, as prequels rarely feel like they came first, since they are filling in pieces that were originally discussed in "later" books. If you're a lover of historical fiction, this is not one to be missed. ( )

Excellent historical fiction. I found that I had either forgotten or never known what the charges against Anne Boleyn were - quite shocking!

I was annoyed by the fact (historically accurate I am sure) that still births, miscarriages & deformities were all assumed to be the result of the mother's sins, never the father's. ( )

I truly cannot get enough of Philippa Gregory novels. One keeps getting better than the last one. To read them in chronological order (see her website for the list) is terrific. It just makes the story keep going. Again another must read. This one is told from the POV from Mary Boleyn (Anne Boleyn's sister). Loved it. ( )

My first P. Gregory and my first medieval historical fiction read. There was no turning back. ( )

Gives a perspective of the court life and behaviors during the reign of Henry VIII which actually made me understand why he got his reputation as a womanizer. Good reading of the rivalry between Mary as mistress only because her family insisted and her overbearing sister Anne. Henry really seemed to care for Queen Katherine. Having the queen stuck in a room for months before birth made me wonder if that helped in the death of so many babies when farmer wives could still stay active. The Boleyn family was so cruel to women, their mother was so cold. Mary changed from total awe and love for a king to realizing what life as a pawn for her family had done to her. Glad she got a better life in the end. Her brother George seemed a bit strange then we find out why at the end. ( )
