This book started off slow, but I still found it intriguing. Once it picked up, I couldn't put it down. Philippa Gregory is great at writing scandalous court drama.

I started off with a strong disdain towards Anne and her heartless over the top drama. Amazingly by the end, Gregory had me feeling the heartache Mary Boleyn felt when she lost her selfish siblings. Along with the people, I too felt pity for Anne when she died. Never thought that would happen.
