I bought this book in High School and loved it. Basically it's a great historical fiction that goes into Anne Boleyn's rise to the British throne--through the eyes of her younger sister, Mary Boleyn. The odd thing is that Mary Boleyn had an affair with King Henry VIII before he met and married Anne. This book does have some raciness to it, but the use of history and character development is excellent, without losing its basis in actual events.
This is a lovely book. It's only my second book by this author, but I'm finding the mix of detective fiction, with some surrealism, and humor very entertaining. If you are the type of reader who needs to have all the details nailed down, you might not enjoy it. My book club is reading it, so I'll be excited to discuss all the open questions from the story.
Just recently re-read; one of my good friend's favorite book. I enjoyed remembering.
