bookshelves: 4-star, kindle, free-or-bargain-kindle, historical-fiction, 2011-read
Recommended for: historical fiction lovers, fans of stories about Henry, Anne, etc.
Read in December, 2011

I didn't think I would like this book as much as I did (I mean, I consider myself a liker of Serious Historical Fiction). I really enjoyed this take on Anne and Henry (and other characters) and I found each segment of Anne's past lives (as she remembered them) to be interesting and entertaining new takes on characters that have been pretty much set in stone by history. Do not go into this book thinking you are going to be reading a thick, densely historic Margaret George book because you aren't. I want to say that in comparison this is a bit of a romp through a well-established (and much written about) time period and characters but "romp" seems too light. While this book does feel light overall, it is written seriously and touches on some serious issues.

I really enjoyed it.
