Philippa Gregory does a good job of writing interesting, page-turning historical fiction. Most of the time (for me) it is like junk food of historical fiction - I must keep reading because it is so read-able but I don't feel like it's that high of quality. Plus it is all about the Tudors which for me gets old.

This, however, is what I consider her masterpiece to date. Astonishing, beautifully written, very intense and with perfect characters. I would recommend this to anyone, especially anyone who thinks that they are done reading Philippa Gregory.
