5 A Brilliant Fast Paced Historial Novel.Maggie13 | 30/04/2007 | See all Maggie13's reviews (42)Top 100 Books Reviewer A fantastic historical novel, set back in the Tudor times. A story about Mary Boleyn and how she won the Kings heart, only to be set aside for her sister Anne, who eventually is beheaded. This book is based on true historical facts which have been used in this fictional novel.This book is fast paced and very exciting to read. I really enjoyed it. It gave me an insight into the life of the Tudors and I felt like I was there. My emotions were up and down reading this book, I just couldn't get enough. It is my most favourite book of all time. If you're interested in the history of the Tudors, and a fan of Philippa Gregory. You will love this book. If you're new to Philippa like I was, you will be in for a treat.Maggie.
