A must read,
This review is from: To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn (Paperback)
Sometimes a book comes along that you not only love reading but it makes you think about your view of history. As an English woman I was taught in school of Anne's role in the reformation of the English church and divorce of Henry VIII from Katherine of Aragon, all of which was based on reports written by those who were against Anne Boleyn. I love reading books about that time period but some have become very much the same as each other but not this one. It was so refreshing to see an Anne with friendships and faith through the eyes her best friend, that it made me rethink what I had previously thought of her.
This story not only brought Anne to life for me but the whole court at the time, I was transported to another time and place and became invested in the lives of the characters I met there. Each character was so real to me and fully developed that I felt like I was there with them.
Seeing the new style of faith birthed during that time and the effect it had on their lives held me mesmerised and I found all too soon I had read the book completely.
Happily I can read it again at any time!
