Loved this book!

I read this one in practically one sitting...with breaks for laundry, etc. I am a fan of historical FICTION, and particularly drawn to this era (1500's). I can't say if the book was historically accurate, but it has made me want to learn more about the royal families of England to find out how accurate it is. A good story showing many facets to the main characters, both negative and positive. This book expanded my view of King Henry the VIII, making him a more 'human' character than I'd previously thought. Before now, I never knew how many wives he'd had, let alone their names. I am eager to read more of Carolly Erickson's fiction, as well as more about the central characters of this book!
