This book is interesting because it sticks virtually always to the Pemberley location, and is a very detailed analysis of the characters' motivation rather than major events. There are some Americanisms, which jar, but not too many. I enjoyed reading it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well-researched, 3 Jan 2014
the author clearly cares deeply about Anne Boleyn, and has done extensive research. The problem for me perhaps lies in that it was originally written as a blog, and is therefore more informal and opinionated than I like. Also the author seems obsessed with proving Philippa Gregory wrong, which is not endearing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating details, 4 Dec 2013
This book examines in enormous detail the probability of various historical marriages having actually taken place, going through contemporary evidence in a thorough manner. It makes fascinating reading, although of course it cannot actually prove anything. Well worth the effort.
