Publisher Description

From “the queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) comes this New York Times bestseller featuring three very different women whose fates are each bound by a bloody curse: the legacy of the Boleyn family.

After the death of his third wife, Jane Seymour, King Henry VIII of England decides to take a new wife, but this time, not for love. The Boleyn Inheritance follows three women whose lives are forever changed because of the king’s decision, as they must balance precariously in an already shaky Tudor Court.

Anne of Cleves is to be married to Henry to form a political alliance, though the rocky relationship she has to the king does not bode well for her or for England.

Katherine Howard is the young, beautiful woman who captures Henry’s eye, even though he is set to marry Anne. Her spirit runs free and her passions run hot—though her affections may not be returned upon the King.

Jane Rochford was married to George Boleyn, and it was her testimony that sent her husband and infamous sister-in-law Anne to their deaths. Throughout the country, her name is known for malice, jealousy, and twisted lust.

The Boleyn Inheritance is a novel drawn tight as a lute string about three women whose positions brought them wealth, admirations, and power, as well as deceit, betrayal, and terror.

Another great book by Gregory

I love a good book and this book definitely delivered a great ride through The Royal Court with strong female characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought it was nearly as entertaining as The Other Boleyn Girl. I loved it enough to download another of Philippa Gregory's other books immediately after reading.

Get your fix

I re-watched the Showtime Tudors series when reading "The Other Boleyn Girl", and is the perfect follow-up! Gregory's fictional plots intertwined with the facts made for an indulgent page-turning experience. This story gives great sub-plot to the Tudors series, and a chance to really feel the motives of the protagonists. I would highly recommend reading this after "The Other Boleyn Girl", and I'm anxiously awaiting "The Taming of the Queen" to keep pace.
