Since I had just finished The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory and was really into the Tudor time, I decided to borrow this book from my English teacher.

It honestly is not my favorite book, but it did bring some insights about/from other characters. Such as you don't really think about the minor characters (i.e. Cardinal Wolsey) as much as you do the main ones (i.e. King Henry).
I've read this more than once. This is where I learned that Anne's sister had been Henry's mistress earlier and had a child by him. So grateful I was not alive during this time where a king could control every aspect of your life.
