Out of all the Tudor books I've read recently (which were all fantastic) I think this one was the best! Finally, a novel that showed what I believe to be the "true" side of Anne Boleyn. I could be completely wrong, and all the other books that portrayed her as a monster could be true. But I just don't believe that, and I never will. I think Henry spread such vicious rumors about Anne after he had her beheaded and it went like a simple gossip game - each person told the next person about her, and it just got worse and worse every time.

So that being said, this book was fantastic. I loved it, and devoured it in one sitting.
