While I'm always interested in literature featuring the Tudor dynasty, I was very disappointed by this novel. I felt like Barnes broke the golden rule of writing (show, don't tell). She TOLD me the story; she didn't let me see it for myself. She gave us details leading up to big events, then ended the chapter; the next chapter would occur AFTER the action took place, so all of the time we invested in getting to the big moment was wasted. Probably won't read another book by this author.
