"If you had not been tempted, you would not have fallen. If it was not in your interest to betray me, then you would have been loyal. Go away, Lady Carrey. You are no better than your sister, who pursues her own ends like a weasel and never glances to one side or the other." THANK YOU, Queen Catherine, for smacking down this arrogant, self-righteous twerp!!

OMG, only an hour left until "Off with her head!" On a more serious note, glad it is picking up, I thought I was going to DIE of boredom reading Mary and William's super amazing life.

Can we excise Mary and William from the story all together? Because I really don't care about them and their "happy, wonderful country life". Good thing this isn't a drinking game or I'd be on the floor :P

Uh, wouldn't Mary's elder children be a bit, oh, I dunno, UPSET about a younger sibling? A younger sibling that has NOT been separated from the mother for months at a time? In fact, why don't ANY of the children resent their mother for being gone so long? Oh, right, we gotta have this idyllic ending. D'oh!!

This is about as horrible as reading Jondalar and Ayla boink in "Valley of Horses" and declare their Twooo Lurve for each other...Mary is becoming quite the little housewife and LOVES it--even if her skin isn't as soft or pale, even if she is wasting another woman's time teaching her how to cook, even if she is doing stuff she has NO IDEA how to do. *headdesk*

"Nothing mattered more than Anne and her belly." Hmm, I remember, not too long ago, you were pretty much the same way with your kids.

Had to stop yesterday after reading about how "wonderful and pure and golden" Mary's TWU LUV for Stafford was. I've since downed a bottle of Tums.

So Mary leaves court without an escort, rides 3 days to Stafford where she declares her Twoo Lurve to him, and somehow, expects to return court??? Given he is a commoner with a farm, what would she DO? She can't cook, clean, mind the farm...Stafford would be stuck doing this until she learned and then, what if she learned it wasn't so "cute" and "fun" as she imagined? UGH!

Sexy time! Did PG take a page out of Auel's book of writing sex scenes?

Isis And they were laughing together before? Urgh. Plot/character inconsistency!

It's odd how close the Queen is to Mary, but I was SO glad to read this part. Mary keeps making excuses for her actions, but she really is no better than Anne.

There is another quote, one from William Stafford, that was like, "Don't cry over your kids. You say you are a woman and have to do what your family wants. If your family wants you to leave them, then you are supposed to be happy about it." I almost felt like he was telling her to grow a pair :)
