What you need to know before your trail

This is a story about Anne Boleyn, the notorious woman who charmed Henry VIII into divorcing his wife, break from the Catholic Church in Rome, and marry her. But the book is not told through her point of view, but through the eyes of her sister, Mary. The portrayal of the family at Hever castle is again of interest and the trials and tribulations of not only Anne’s but Mary’s growing up and their involvement with the court and King Henry VIII is very well done. Of course, some events are elaborated or fabricated for the book as they were for the film, but Hever castle is a character in this book in its own right and explains what Anne must have experienced when she lived there with her domineering family.
