Well worth reading. It was an interesting slant on the rise and fall of the Boleyns and Howards and the political intrigues. Women lacking power or rights beyond being the chattels of fathers and husbands to command at will. The research seems to be very detailed and accurate. I always enjoy historical novels of this period and was agreeably surprised at the standard of Philippa Gregory's writing.
