The author tells her story backwards starting from when Katherine Howard is a queen and then going back to the first time Cathryn meets Katherine. Then she goes back even further to when Cathryn first moves into a duchess' home and complains about how poor the home is. Then goes forward just a little bit to right before she meets Katherine. After that, it describes how Katherine and Cathryn know each other for a long time, but don't really have a deep or caring relationship.

A good part of the book was about tittering schoolgirls and I seriously considered not finishing. The girls didn't even have any depth to them. There wasn't much substance or excitement until after 1/3 of the way through the book when the author drops the "f" bomb and everything after that is about acquiring/hiding/getting away with sex.

It was a struggle to finish for me. The "close friends" didn't even care about each other. I didn't find much to push the story forward. I thought the author rambled and was fond of using too many dashes in her writing.
