liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction, star-3
Read in August, 2010

I enjoyed the story and writing. It only got a lower score for my automatic downgrade for sexual content. Not graphic, just frankly discussed between sisters. And LOTS of innuendo.

Of course, can that time of life with those people be written about without that? They were definitely depraved.

Still the drama of it all was fascinating and well told. I liked it from the point of view of Anne's sister. Made me want to find out more about the whole sordid affair of Henry and his wives. Also, made me glad I was not a woman back then!

I'll probably read more of this author.
