Read in May, 2010

A fascinating recreation of the early 1500's when Henry VIII, with help from Thomas Cromwell, is trying to dump wife #1 and marry wife #2. A bit over-long and stuffed with too many names and details.

Sarah I'm trying to get through this one!

Janet It was a bit of a slog, and I happened to really enjoy studying this era when I was in 7th grade. Cromwell is a likable character, though at times he seems too good to be true! Were these other people just idiots that he shined in comparison, or what?
