The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory

ISBN 9780006514008 HarperCollins

This is the first Philippa Gregory book I’ve read and I’m very impressed. She has an extremely convincing knowledge of the Tudor period and manages to bring the sorry saga of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn to life. Vivid, easy to read and fascinating.

Like any good historical novel, it seems wrong to label this fiction.

I’ll be reading more of her books soon.
